Free Father’s Day Color By Number Printables

If your kids love to color like mine do, this Father’s Day color by number is a great way to keep them engaged and working on some early learning math skills and fine motor skills.

I enjoy making color by number printables because it’s not just coloring, it’s coloring based on the recognition of a number, letter, shape or image. The possibilities are endless depending on what skills you want your kids to practice!

For these particular color by number printables, I focused on numbers 1 to 6 and counting fingers from 1 to 4.

The counting fingers from 1 to 4 printable is a fantastic tool for helping kids visualize the numbers 1 through 4 in a tangible way. They can hold up their hand and match the image, physically counting each finger to see what each number represents.

Why Color by Number Printables Are Great For Kids

Beyond being a fun boredom buster or engaging coloring activities, color by number printables offer several developmental benefits.

Here are three reasons why color by number printables are a great activity for kids to do.

  1. Color by number activities help with number recognition. Usually each section of the color by number printables has a number attached that corresponds to a specific color. This helps kids improve their number recognition skills in a fun and interactive way.
  2. Color by number activities help with fine motor skills. Coloring is a great way to develop fine motor skills. From practicing manipulating supplies like crayons, colored pencils, or markers to then practicing steadiness and coordination is a great way to strengthen the small muscles in our hands and fingers.
  3. Color by number activities help with visual discrimination. Engaging in color by number activities helps kids get better at telling colors and numbers apart, honing their eye for detail. Plus, it’s a fun way for them to learn about patterns and how things fit together (spatial awareness).

Our Free Printable Father’s Day Color By Number Activities


We’ve got a pair of adorable Father’s Day color by number printables, both with their own unique designs, and they’re free for you to enjoy!

One color by number printable features a mustache with a rainbow of colors in the background, and the other one features a yellow and green tie in a sea of red and blue.

Both printables are created with kid-friendly images and clear number guides to make coloring easy and enjoyable.

The lines are thick, making it easier for kids to “stay within the lines,” and sections are suitable for younger kids who are still developing their fine motor skills.

Tips For Coloring These Father’s Day Color By Number Printables

Make sure to have plenty of coloring tools such as crayons, colored pencils, or markers on hand to bring the artwork to life.

I love how there are so many different types of coloring supplies to choose from nowadays. If you’re going to use markers, I highly recommend using the Crayola Pip Squeaks Markers. They are washable, are easy for little hands to hold, and come in a nice portable carrying case.

My girls adore their Pip Squeaks Markers, but truth be told, you don’t need anything fancy to tackle these color by number printables. My oldest daughter and I opted for our trusty Crayola crayons, neatly stored in a humble caddy from the Dollar Store (my go-to spot for bargains!).

Displaying The Father’s Day Color by Number Printables

We love to color, draw, and craft in our household. Typically, I display my daughters’ latest creations on our fridge, swapping them out periodically.

However, during an Amazon browsing session, I found these nifty changeable artwork frames, perfect for showcasing their masterpieces in style!

These frames are just fantastic – they can hold up to 150 pages, and they’re tailor-made for 8.5 x 11″ paper, the exact size of all my printables!

With these frames you can easily turn these color by number printables into a cute handmade gift that show off your kid’s hard work this Father’s Day.
