National Coloring Book Day on August 2nd recognizes the joy children and adults alike derive from coloring in pages of designs.
Coloring and coloring books have always been popular with children, but over the years, adults have gotten more and more involved with coloring. Obviously, adult coloring is now a huge trend. Many find that it is not only fun but also a great way to reduce stress.
With so many colors and designs to choose from, coloring offers enjoyment in so many settings. They’re portable and come in a variety of sizes. Take coloring books on vacation with you for rainy days or to document a fun memory.
For the technology enthusiasts out there you can even download an app on your phone. At the doctor’s office, or wherever you may be this digital version keeps the pages and colors at your fingertips.
Coloring books also make great gifts all year long. When someone visits, be sure to leave a coloring book and colors in the guest room for downtime. At the office, keep a variety of books in the breakroom for co-workers to fill up.
