Coloring Books for Teens & Adults

Thursday, September 10, 2015




Hi friends.  Have you seen these coloring books yet?  Well they are all the rage right now, and they are so much fun to color.  They have exciting designs on every page and different themes to choose from.  You can use crayons or colored pencils to color in the pages and they are a great way to relieve stress, and perfect for teens and adults.  This is a way to bring out your imagination, creativeness, and get lost in coloring for hours.

I bought a few of these online from Amazon and they are also sold in bookstores such as Barnes & Noble, and at Costco.  There are so some many different design books to choose from such as flowers, mandalas, animals, etc.  I spent some time coloring a page with colored pencils and I really enjoyed it, as I haven't colored in a long time.  

If you think you might like coloring, than I would recommend these coloring books.  These also make great gifts for birthday's or for the holiday's.  I just bought my niece last weekend, for her birthday, one of these books and a big set of crayons and markers to go with it.  My niece seemed excited to try it out and I hope she has fun.

Have you tried out these coloring books yet? 

I also downloaded an app on my iPad for coloring called Colorfy that was recommended by my blog buddy Jess from Plucky's Second Thought.  This is a fun way to color too but you have to get used to using it.  You can color some awesome pictures this way.


Wishing you all a colorful weekend.  See you all next week for Monday's Cooking and Crafting with J & J Link Up!

  3. I think they are wonderful! I haven't tried any adults one but am quite involved working (drawing and painting that is) with my kids. I would love to try it and to be honest - have been eyeing Alisa Burke's sets of coloring books. Maybe I just treat myself one of these days.

  4. That's so funny you posted about this today. I literally just bought one at Michael's for my daughter. We were grabbing some school supplies for an art class and she saw the display of these books and had to have one. I have to admit that I am tempted to join her and color a page or two. When they were little, I used to grab a coloring book and create right along next to them! ;)

  11. Hi Julie, yes these coloring books for adults and teens are all the rage and have been for some time. The Graphic's Fairy has pages to download and use if you are looking for a single page. I haven't had time to do this yet, but it would be fun and relaxing. Have a great weekend. Hugs, cm

  15. Fun! Even my pre-teen boys get into (and are calmed by) coloring when the designs are really detailed like this. Glad to know I should check Costco next time I'm there. (Literacy Musing Monday)

  31. Adult coloring books (sounds a bit risque) are amazing! I purchased a few for myself and my daughter and then I loved them so much I sent one to my mom. They are so therapeutic and the end results are lovely. I usually use colored pencils and I even using some shading techniques in mine. Enjoying your books, Beverly
