Color It By Numbers Review and Giveaway

color by number animalsA few weeks ago, while I was hunting for some free printable coloring pages, I came across a color by number page featuring Z.E.N.’s favorite character, Lightning McQueen, from the movie Cars. This was the first time he ever tried coloring by number and he really enjoyed. In fact, he asked me if I could print it out again so that he could do it again. In addition to coloring, he also likes to play games on the computer, so when I was given the opportunity to review a new coloring computer program, I was excited and jumped at the chance.

Color It By Numbers is an awesome computer software application which was developed to help children to quickly learn their colors and numbers while also allowing them to learn some basic computer skills. This software program was developed by a team of software professionals that specialize in creating educational and entertaining games for kids. The program is available for Windows, Mac and Linux users.

There are currently three different coloring books to choose from:  animals, princesses, and vehicles. Each book features a ton of coloring pages.  In addition, there are 3 different coloring options to choose from. You can choose to color by number, color the separate pieces to make the image visible, or free style coloring where you choose your own colors.

We tested out the vehicles and animals version. Once I started up the program, Z.E.N. was able to dive right in without any difficulties. He loved the upbeat music playing in the background, and he really liked coloring the animals. He even discovered that he could change the preset colors on his own, so I can definitely say that this software program is very user friendly

Would you like to try out the software? Head on over to Color it By Numbers and you will be able to download and test 2 coloring pages.
