When Should Adults Color?

Detailed Coloring Pages

Coloring pages for adults are a great activity for anytime. If you have children, you can join them while they are doing their own coloring. I know my little one doesn't want to share her Princess coloring book with me, so I can color my own while she works on hers. Even if you don't have children, coloring is a great pastime.

If you know someone who is recovering from surgery or is wheelchair bound, a gift of coloring books would probably be appreciated. It is a quiet activity, but it interesting enough to hold their attention. Coloring is also great to do right before bed, or whenever quiet time is needed.

What Should Adults Color?

Fairy Coloring Pages For Adults

Fairy coloring pages for adults are perfect for those who enjoy traditional fantasy images. Many fairy coloring pages also have nature scenes in them: flowers, plants, butterflies, etc. Scenes like this are a lot of fun to color because the result can be so lovely and elegant looking.

For many adults, including me, coloring beautiful drawings in a book are the closest we get to creating fine art. Coloring detailed coloring pages can be challenging and enjoyable too.

Fairy coloring books would also appeal to teenagers and some children. Most little kids would probably prefer Disney type fairies, though.

This beautiful book has an illustration to color for each letter of the alphabet. The fairies in it are very sweet and childlike. Each scene includes the letter, the fairy, and then a beautiful flower: A is for Azalea, B is for Bluebell, etc. I love it! It made me think of an old-fashioned sampler.

Technically, this alphabet coloring book is geared towards children, but I thought any adult who likes coloring fairies would enjoy this book as well.

      Very interesting. I am just now learning that so many adults color. As a child I quickly moved from coloring books to drawing my own images. You have given me a lot to think about.
