These free printable Halloween color by number pages are the perfect Halloween activity for kids! Just print out one of the six cute color by number printables and get started coloring! Kids will love finding each of the numbers and seeing the pages come to life as they go!
Cute Halloween Color by Number Pages
Some kids love to sit down and color coloring pages (like these adorable Halloween coloring pages).
My boys are not those kids. However, they do really enjoy anything that feels like a start and finish activity, like these pumpkin worksheets.
Since I know that coloring has so many great benefits, I made these free Halloween color by number pages to get them to color while still feeling like they’re doing an activity.
These Halloween color by number pages are great because they still allow kids to color and get creative by choosing different variations of color, but they give structure too so kids don’t get bored or just color everything one color and say hey I’m done.
They make a great choice for a free time activity during a Halloween party, a great option for taking a break from some of these Halloween games, and a perfect choice for adding to a Halloween fun bucket at home!
Why Color by Number Pages Are Great
Outside of keeping kids from getting bored with just coloring, here are some of the other reasons that you should try out color by number worksheets instead of just coloring! Try them in addition to any of these other Halloween activities.
- Fine motor skills practice – any time kids are coloring, it’s great for their fine motor skills!
- Number recognition – these are especially great for kids who are working on their numbers! Finding numbers to color is great practice!
- Color recognition – not only do kids have to find the numbers, they also have to find the associated color on the picture and the correct color utensil that matches. This is great for practicing color recognition!
For young children, go through the colors together as a group and color in the crayons before you just let them go wild with coloring the rest of the picture! This way if they cannot read the words on the crayons, they’ll still know the correct number for each color. And when I say correct, I mean matching.
What is In This Color by Number Set
This set of Halloween color by number pages includes six different color by number pages. Each one is a different image including:
- Candy corn
I specifically included candy corn and the owl so that if you want something that’s more fall color by number than Halloween, you could still use this packet of printables! Just skip the Halloween characters and go with the fall inspired ones!
These would make a perfect addition to this roll a pumpkin game for a fall festival or activity day!
How to Use These Color by Number Sheets
If you’ve never done a color by number page, it’s very simple!
Print out the pages – you can print out one for each person coloring or just print out a bunch and let them choose.
How to Print
I recommend just printing these out on regular white printer paper.
Hand out the color by number pages and some coloring utensils. I like to do either crayons, colored pencils, or markers. I’d skip paint but if you really want to paint, that could work as well!
Then you just find the first number on the page as well as the color associated with that number. Then color in all of the spaces with that number. Once all of those are colored in, move to the next number.
Continue doing this until you’ve colored the entire color by number printable!
I tried hard to keep all of the numbers easily legible and in spaces big enough that you can actually color unlike some of the other color by number pages I’ve seen out there! This should make it so that kids can color any of these pages, not just one or two!
These Halloween theme color by number pages are best for kids who will be able to recognize numbers, likely kindergarten students and above. You could, however, use these with kids of all ages as long as you’re willing to help younger children find and recognize the numbers.
Let the kids color them however they want unless you’re doing this for an actual independent work assignment of some sort. This is especially true for young kids who may not be able to read the color words and just want to make the 1 pink and the 2 green and so on. You want to have a happy Halloween activity, not one that everyone hates so let them choose their own color if they want!
