There was a time when Coloring Books were only for children, and once you reached the teen years, they like many other toys found their way to the back of the pile, never to be picked up again. Take another look! Coloring Books are becoming a rage all over again. The Best part, they are not just for kids anymore!
Can we all give a collective Woo Hoo! Todays coloring books are being met with awe and fascination because the simple outlines that our children colored are now being filled in with designs that will keep you busy for hours. What started as a “fad” in many places is giving way to having adults embrace the quiet calm that comes over them when they have a crayon in hand and fill in the little spaces on a fantastic design. Once filled in with your “special” colors, the design is now yours and yours alone. There will never be two alike!
Now I have had several of these Coloring Books for a while now and I find that my stress levels drop the minute I sit down and open the pages. It isn’t even hard to pick out which page I want to do. The choices are so varied, that anyone that you start on will have you mesmerized before you can say “boo”. The simple task of picking the colors and working them into the outlines is so therapeutic that these coloring books are worth their weight in gold. Many of us today, are stressed to the max and we don’t even realize it. Sit down and take 5 to 10 minutes a day with these books and you will find that your stomach seems to settle down, your nerves are unwinding and your frustrations are disappearing all with the colors of blue, or green, or red.
So your need for a gift for that person who has everything, has just been found. Even those who don’t have everything will find a coloring book to suit their particular desires. If you know someone with a penchant for cats, or dogs, flowers or fish, owl or mandalas, you can find a coloring book to suit their particular likes. Add a few new coloring pens or pencils and you have a gift that will give hours of pleasure and hours of peace too!
And while you are at making someone else’s life more interesting, don’t forget yourself of your significant other, they need some of that calm too!
Searching for Coloring Pages will result in lots of choices too! Just make sure you are ready with your coloring pencils and pens, because all the designs are wonderful and easy on the eyes. Enjoy!
Hope your days find at least 1 hour of stress relief!
