Coloring by Numbers (magic or coded coloring) is a coloring activity in which colors are applied following a specific code or sequence. This type of coloring can be used to help children develop their ability to follow directions, make connections, and improve their shape and color recognition skills. Coloring codes can be a fun and interactive way for children to learn, offering them a playful way to practice their problem solving and code solving skills. It is also a creative way to develop children’s self-confidence and perseverance. Coloring codes can be used for reading, writing, math, science, history and other subjects.
