Colouring Books for Adults, Art Therapy

Colouring Books for Adults, Art Therapy

I always loved colouring as a child and encouraged my daughter and nephews to colour so that I could join in. It was great to sit with them, chatting away about their day whilst creating a beautiful piece of artwork.

Except…..children GO OVER THE LINES!

It drove me CRAZY !! but you can’t tell a child off for GOING OVER THE LINES, can you?

So you have to say nothing and just carry on, knowing that your picture is ruined because little 5-year-old Jack WENT OVER THE LINES!

By the time you have taught them to colour beautifully WITHIN THE LINES and they have gained enough dexterity to do so, they don’t want to colour with you anymore!

So when adult colouring books hit the shelves a few years ago I was so happy. Colouring didn’t have to be a guilty pleasure anymore, it was now called ‘Art Therapy’ and everyone was doing it to relieve the stresses and strains of daily life.

Then I found out something really amazing…

You can buy ‘swear word’ colouring books, whoever thought of that is a genius!

So you can think of someone who has ruined your day and sit there colouring a swear word in their honour…..and it’s ok, because it’s ‘Art Therapy’!

It’s considered to be stress relieving, fun and helps you to relax. It releases creativity and reduces anxiety.

I had to laugh they come with a warning ‘NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN’. Imagine little Polly at nursery showing her teacher the new words she learned with mummy!

If you are a dog lover like me, these dog colouring books for adults look like lots of fun.

If you just want to relax these look really pretty.

These pens have double ends.


Happy Colouring!
