Coloring books for adults is an offspring of art therapy which is a mental health profession that is the process of making and creating artwork which intends to "explore feelings, reconcile emotional conflicts, foster self-awareness, manage behavior and addictions, develop social skills, improve reality orientation, reduce anxiety and increase self-esteem" (according to the American Art Therapy Association). So basically, it's similar to good old therapy. Also, art therapy is not only about mental health and improving yourself - it's a form of personal expression, as well.

Once they are done, we often grab our child safe scissors and cut out the figures on the pages. From there we have the choice of putting them up around the house or adding them into a scrapbook. Trust me once they start scrapbooking these, you will end up with loads of books full of pictures which you will treasure more and more as they grow up. I intend to try and embarrass my kids with these on their future wedding days! He will soon be old enough that in a year or so we will be able to break out the paints and see what he is like using them on the Coloring Pages. I know he will love this although I am already nervous at the idea of the chaos it could make! I am sure his eyes will go wide the first time I mix two colors together to make a brand new one, such as red and yellow combining to make orange. It is so rewarding to see his progress over time as he learns without knowing he is doing so. I can really see how his ability to concentrate has improved. Throwing a children's birthday party can be a rather tough ordeal to overcome and process, ask any long suffering parent just how much stress they need to endure whenever they have to contend with their own children. The stress level will then increase by an exponential amount for each additional child that they have to contend with, and to increase the stress factor even higher, they have to contend with the fact that they do not even have the luxury of being able to discipline the unruly children who are guests! As a parent I know how expensive purchasing hundreds of coloring books can get and its such a shame to let something so fun pass them by because of money, so finding free pages online are a fantastic way to still provide kids with the fun without the expense. Let your kids evolve, grow, imagine, and participate in one of the easiest methods around to challenge their skills with coloring.
