Skills to Practice
Coloring and creating is a great way for kids to practice fine motor skills and color recognition. My toddler enjoyed painting each of the little apples using a paint brush. He proudly proclaimed that he colored each red or green once he was finished.
If you have ever watched a toddler focus on a task then you will know how intently they concentrate. My goal in creating these free printables is for your children to not only color, but practice math and language arts skills.
Young children can practicing counting by adding up all of the apples on each of the trees. They can then practice letter recognition by coloring in each of the different letters on the sheet.
Kids can use crayons, markers, or even watercolor paint to color in these sheets. I love leaving out a few different art supplies and letting my son pick out the one he wants to use.
