I know colour-by-number sheets have been around for ages, but for whatever reason, I had completely forgotten they existed until a few months ago.
Maybe it’s the fact that our eldest has started kindergarten that’s opened up a whole new range of possibilities for us. (And of course, since everybody wants to be like Big Sister, our two- and four-year-old have also decided to come along for the ride.)
Or maybe it’s all the time I’ve been spending making printables for our kids—and this site—that jogged my memory.
But regardless of what it was that caused me to remember them, I’m really glad I did. Because as it turns out, they’re a great way to add a learning component to colouring!
We’ll probably be sticking with plain old number recognition for the next little while since our kids are still young. But with a little tweaking, colour-by-number worksheets can also be used to practice a variety of mathematical skills like addition, subtraction and multiplication.
I’m looking forward to creating a lot more of these as our kids get older!

About this Printable
When you download this printable, you’ll receive a set of 5 Saint Patrick’s Day-themed colour-by number worksheets for kids. The 5 designs include:
- 1 pot of gold colouring sheet
- 1 horseshoe and 4-leaf clover colouring sheet
- 1 leprechaun colouring sheet
- 1 shamrock and 4-leaf clover colouring sheet
- 1 rainbow and pot of gold colouring sheet
Once you download the PDF to your computer, all you’ll need to do is print it on Letter-sized (8.5 x 11 inches) paper and give it to your kids so they can colour in the designs using pencils, markers or crayons.
This activity is geared toward children aged between 4 and 8 years old, and each worksheet requires 5 to 8 colours to complete. This means that even preschool and kindergarten children who are able to recognize numbers should be able to keep themselves busy with this activity while you get things done around the house.
And because I’m always happy to help out fellow educators, school use is allowed and teachers are more than welcome to print out this resource for their 1st grade, 2nd grade or 3rd grade students!
