Mastering the multiplication facts is a process that can take a surprising amount of time. If your third grader (or beyond) is struggling with basic facts, it can be discouraging.

I’ve been there, friends. And it’s HARD.

Rest assured that your child WILL eventually master the multiplication facts . . . even if it’s not when an arbitrary guideline says they should.

Printable Color by Code Worksheets

Color by number activities are a fun way for kids of all ages to practice basic multiplication skills. A coloring sheet is definitely more fun than repetitive math worksheets (even for older kids).

I made these color by number printables with homeschoolers in mind, but teachers love them, too.

If you teach in a classroom or homeschool co-op, these are a great no-prep activity for multiplication morning work, math stations, or early finisher activities.

Printable Mystery Picture Worksheets

If you need a more challenging multiplication page, you may want to try these hidden picture worksheets. Instead of having a picture outline to color in, these color by number multiplication worksheets have a grid of 100 squares to color.

Kids have no idea what the picture will be when they start solving the problems. They’ll actually be excited to solve the problems so they can color in the squares and see the picture emerge.

Each set of mystery picture worksheets (spring, summer, fall, and winter) includes 9 mystery pictures, with one page each for multiplying by 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9.

You can choose whether to print in color or black and white. Answer keys are included (see below).
