Printable Subtraction Mystery Pictures

If you need a bigger subtraction challenge, you may want to try these subtraction mystery pictures. Instead of a typical color by number page, these hidden picture subtraction worksheets have a grid of 100 squares to color.

Kids will be motivated to solve the problems so they can color each square the correct color and see the picture emerge.

If 100 problems seems like too much for younger students, you can divide the grid into 2 or more sections so it is less overwhelming.

Each set of mystery picture worksheets (spring, summer, fall, and winter) includes 9 mystery pictures, with one page each for subtracting 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).
