Coloring Book Day is nationally celebrated August 2 each year. There is something magical and soothing between the pages of a coloring book, whether it’s a Disney princess coloring book or a color-by-numbers for adults. Coloring books make designers of us all. Are you a Rembrandt with sensible colors and patterns that are orderly? Or maybe you’re more of a Picasso with his unique designs and colors?
Back when I was growing up, I never saw adults color unless they were coloring with their children. Coloring is definitely an activity that can soothe an anxious child, calming their brain down a bit with the task of coloring between the lines. But there are many different options for coloring books just for teens and adults now.
So, get those crayons ready and sharpen your colored pencils. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite coloring books for all ages. You can share your coloring activities on National Coloring Day by hashtagging #ColoringBookDay across Social Platforms.
