Getting your child to do something educational can be about as easy as getting them to eat vegetables … which is to say not easy at all. Luckily, you’re a Super Mom (or Dad!), and I know you’ve got a few tricks up your sleeve. Tricks like these fun but secretly educational spring color by number printables. 😉
When it comes to parenting, there are a lot of challenges, such as getting your kid to eat anything healthy. And while there are a lot of different options you can try to get your kids to eat vegetables and fruits, one of my favorite tactics is to hide the healthy ingredients. That’s right—you sneak them into otherwise delicious foods so that your kid doesn’t even realize they’re eating something nutritious! I like to do the exact same thing with learning.
Yep, passing educational activities (like flashcards) off as a game or disguising them as otherwise “fun” endeavors is an easy way to turn your child into an eager participant! And that brings me to these 3 free spring color by number pages. Your kid will think they’re just getting to color (which has cognitive and mental health benefits in and of itself) but these free printable spring color by number worksheets pack a little extra educational punch thanks to the number and color matching!
