Multiplication fact practice with a Halloween twist. Perfect for revising times tables this October.
With Halloween on the horizon, it’s always fun to incorporate a few Halloween-themed activities into your math curriculum.
So today, I’d like to introduce a new resource: a set of Halloween-themed colour-by-number activities.
I had great fun drawing these Halloween pictures (apart from the bats – it’s harder that you’d think to get the shape of a bat correct…) and I hope you like them.
Tell me about these colour by number activities
These activity sheets are a really fun way for your child to keep multiplication facts ticking over.
This resource comes in the form of a digital PDF document and contains four different colour-by-number pages.
Each of the four activities gets progressively more challenging and focuses on a different group of facts.
The four different Halloween activities are as follows:
Worksheet 1 (witch picture):
This first sheet focuses on 2s, 3s, 4s and 5s.
With this activity, answers are no bigger than 50. Your child will need six colours: yellow, black, purple, orange, green and blue.
Worksheets 2 (haunted house):
This second activity sheet focuses on 6s, 7s, 8s, 9s and 10s and will reveal a colourful haunted house.
This is a bit trickier than the first sheet with answers as up to 100.
Worksheet 3 (owl and bats)
For children that want to practise all their multiplication tables from 2s, through to 10s, this activity includes a selection of facts up to 10 x 10.
Worksheet 4 (pumpkins)
Once children know their multiplication facts back-to-front and inside out (ie. really well!), they’ll need a little extra challenge.
And so, this activity focuses on 11s and 12s too with a selection of facts up to 12 x 12.
Are answers included?
Yes! A full colour version of what each finished activity should look like is included.
The answers to each of the multiplication number sentences are marked on too.
I think you’ll agree, the finished pictures look pretty colourful.
What age are these colour by number activities for?
These colour-by-number multiplication sheets are ideal for children in grade 3 and up.
But really they’ll be great for any child who needs to practise multiplication facts and likes colouring!
Do these worksheets work well with a class of children?
Yes, with four different activities of different levels of challenge, it is easy to differentiate.
For example, a whole class can be completing a colour-by-number activity but can be practising different facts. Some children can be revising 2s, 3s, 4s and 5s whilst another child can be working on facts up to 10 x 10 or even 12 x 12.
These activities are great for class work, homework or as an extra activity for children who have finished all their classwork.
Where can I find these Halloween math sheets?
There are two versions: one for Canadian/UK/Australian spelling (e.g. ‘colour’) and one from US spelling (e.g. ‘color’).
