Easter coloring pages can be more than just filling in various objects with color. They can as you will see in this post be Easter coloring pages with learning skills. Combining both coloring and learning engages children and sneaks in concept learning and review.
I created two Easter coloring pages that review a skill that my son and I have been working on. The first focuses on adding numbers up to twelve. The second focuses on letters that children commonly reverse when reading and writing.
Let’s look at how we used each Easter coloring page to learn and color.
Easter Coloring Page- Roll and Color Math Chick
The first coloring page we looked at is called Roll and Color Math Chick. JDaniel and I sat down with two die and a bag of crayons. He was asked to roll the two die and count up the dots on the each dice to find the sum. (As I mentioned in post called Cat in the Hat Math Activity Mats, we use dice with dots. If you have a more advance learner, you may want to use dice with numbers on them.)
Every time JDaniel rolled a sum he colored in the dot containing that number. If he rolled a number that was already colored in, he was able to color in the circle labeled Free. Once that circle was colored in, he had to roll again to try to find a sum that that was empty on the Easter coloring page.
Easter Coloring Page- Roll and Color Letter Chick
The second Easter coloring page has uppercase letters on it. I had toyed with using lowercase letters in the circles, but I had trouble finding a font that had a lowercase “q” that children would recognize.
The way the game worked was that I had put letters on colored dot shaped stickers. The stickers with the letters were put on wooden cubes. JDaniel was asked to rolled one of the letter dice at a time. He read me that letter and then showed me its match. If he got it correct, he got to color the matching circle on the page. If he got it wrong, he had to roll the die again.
Here is the Roll and Color Letter Chick printable.
Both games ended up being a great way to review learning concepts. When JDaniel had finished each Easter coloring page, he was invited to color in the rest of the chick and add some other elements to the picture.
We sat down and did these activities together as parent and child. I think these roll and color Easter coloring pages could be done with pair of children as well.
