As a mom, I’ve never minded sitting down with my daughter and spending time with crayons. It’s relaxing. I knew that, yet I wasn’t the brilliant one who decided adult coloring books would be a “thing”. It’s brilliant.
Think about it for a second.
There are many people who could use the adult coloring books as therapy – physical therapy (fine motor skills). Younger and older people.
There are many people who could use the adult coloring books when they are lonely.
There are some, like me, who have been sidelined due to an illness or injury and have a little extra time in bed on their hands. Adult coloring books are perfect.
There are so many who would love them just for fun. Mom can have her coloring book while kiddo has hers. Family time right there.
I’ve chosen a few of my favorite adult coloring books and organized them in different categories.
As luck would have it, I had bought myself my very own, and very first, adult coloring book just weeks before I broke my foot. What timing. So, I’ve spent many times coloring over the past few weeks – a welcome distraction that’s a distraction from pain, relaxing and fun.
I’m in the market for yet another book and I’ve found so many great options that I wanted to share them with you.
