Grab your watercolors for this cute little set of winter paint-by-letter worksheets.
You’ve probably heard of paint by number. For your preschoolers who love to paint with watercolors, we’ve created an early literacy offshoot of that.
Winter Paint by Letter
With these free worksheets, students will find the letters and paint them a specific color. They’ll have a pretty picture to show off when they’re done!
Depending on which worksheet you choose, students will develop the following skills:
- Uppercase letter recognition
- Lowercase letter recognition
- Fine motor skills
- Naming colors
What’s Included in the Free Printable
You’ll get two different pictures to paint. Each one comes in 4 different variations. There are 8 pages in total.
Preparation & Materials
To prepare, choose the worksheets you want for each student and print them. Then, grab a paintbrush and color code the “paintbox” on the side of each worksheet. I have written suggested colors there, but you don’t have to follow that.
If you do follow my suggested colors, you’ll only need a basic watercolor set like the one shown.
How to Paint
Talk with students about the color names and letters. Then, let children work down the paint box one letter at a time. They will find all instances of that letter and paint it the same color on the picture that they see on the paint box.
