- Introduces kids to color: Color by number pages are a good way to teach color theory and recognition to children.
- Encourages focus: Kids focus on specific colors, numbers, or shapes while engaging in color by number activities. This helps to build focus and concentration. It also gives them a specific task to complete with several procedural steps to follow.

As they begin to match the colors to numbers, it’s fun and delightful to discover the hidden pictures that start to come to life beneath the tips of their crayons.
