# Multiplication Coloring Page | Free Printable

Here, in this article, I will show how to use a multiplication coloring page and by using this, how you can teach your kiddo multiplication easily. Can you believe that summer is almost here? Even though we are all ready for a break, it is important that learning continues.

Our summer learning tends to revolve around the computer. I find a learning program that will have them practice their math and reading skills in a fun way….and that is how I keep things fresh for them. This year I have one other goal for my oldest kiddo.

He has mastered** skip counting** but can only solve multiplication problems by skip counting. When you are solving three-digit multiplication problems this gets very time-consuming. It just adds another layer of difficulty to these challenging problems.

So this summer, in addition to our computer work we will be focusing on our multiplication facts.

## Multiplication Facts

There are so many ways to memorize these facts. And they don’t have to involve flash cards….though if your child enjoys that, do it!! Memorization requires repetition, and finding fun ways to repeat facts over and over is the key.

Games are my favorite way to work on memorization. They are fun and my boys will play them over and over. They are getting into that repetition without being bored to tears!

**Task cards** that are hands-on and visual are another fun way for our children that are Kinesthetic learners to work through multiplication facts.

But I wanted to have other activities for my little man to work on too. So today I’m sharing a simple coloring page.

## 2 Fun Games to Use Multiplication Coloring Page with Your Youngsters

Our children will be able to learn multiplication very easily and interactively with the help of this activity. This approach is quite successful.

This method should assist your young champ in learning basic math operations and laying a solid calculating foundation.

**Prep Work**

These multiplication coloring pages are truly no prep.

- First, print off the pages.
- Next, gather up some crayons or Do-A-Dot markers.
- And that is it. You are ready to go.

### Find the Factors of Expressions on Multiplication

- There are five coloring pages for our kiddos to color. Each page has a number written at the top of the left-hand side of the page. All the students have to do is find the expressions that equal that number.
- One of the pages has a 12 at the top. So the students will go on a hunt for 12 x 1, 2 x 6, and 3 x 4.
- When they find them, they can either color in the beach ball or use a Do-A-Dot marker to dot it.

You may be thinking there isn’t much to these sheets. All I need to do is pass them out and they can work on their multiplication facts. But here are a few concepts you can review or discuss before your kiddos start coloring.

**Communitive Property**

The commutative property states that order does not matter when adding or multiplying. You see a + b will always equal b + a. Or a x b = b x a. But this only works with addition and multiplication. 5 – 3 = 2 but 3 – 5 does not equal 2.

While coloring these multiplication coloring pages, the children will have an opportunity to see communitive property. You can expand their math vocabulary by pointing this out to them before they begin, and even have them go on a search for some examples.

If they are searching for expressions that equal 24, they can find these examples of the commutative property. 12 x 2 = 2 x 12 3 x 8 = 8 x 3 4 x 6 = 6 x 4

**Factors**

Sometimes even the best of students will miss an expression or two that equals that magic number at the top. One way to prevent this is to have them list all the factors first.

So If I’m working on 48, they would come up with all the numbers that can be multiplied together to get that number.

We know that 1 x 48, 2 x 24, 3 x 16, 4 x 12, 6 x 8 all equal 48. So the factors of 48 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 16, 24, 48.

Listing those factors is another great way to get in that extra multiplication practice.

### Board Game with Multiplication

- Children will gather together to play this game. Teacher/parents will generate the game. First, the teacher will write a multiplication expression on the board and ask the children who will answer the product of the expression. Children who know the answer will raise their hands.
- The child who raises his/her hand first will come to the teacher and he/she will collect the paper where the teacher will ask him to find the expression written in the board and color it.
- In this way, the game will be continued until the teacher decide it to stop.
- After finishing the game, the child who answered most of the questions will win the game.
- If there is a tie, there will be a tiebreaker question from the teacher.
