Coloring books have enjoyed a surge in popularity in recent years for good reason. The benefits to both children and adults are numerous.
For young children it can aid in the development of fine motor skills, contribute to better handwriting, stimulate creativity whether they color inside the lines or out, help with color awareness, improve hand to eye coordination, and boost self-esteem with accomplishment and pride in themselves. It’s also calming and therapeutic especially for kids that have difficulties with unpleasant or confusing emotions. But those children that fall within the normal range of emotional health can also benefit from processing feelings through coloring as well.
For both adults and older kids coloring can relieve stress and boost mental clarity (who isn’t for that?). LOL It helps to relax at home and doesn’t require special clothing or membership fees or computers. It can aid in relaxation, boost creativity and even help improve sleep and attention spans. It’s like taking a vacation without going anywhere! Better yet it’s been endorsed by the American Art Therapy Association. There are coloring book clubs nationwide, and many libraries have coloring book meet-ups for adults to get together to color and enjoy social conversation and interaction! There’s even a “National Coloring Book Day” August 2nd!
Our coloring books have perforated pages so you can tear them out and share with the whole family, thus creating great bonding time! We also include two of every 11 x 14 one-sided page just in case more than one person wants to color the same animal. And BONUS! The facts about those animals are included. So join the coloring, crowd, and conversation today!
