National Coloring Book Day

On August 2nd, National Coloring Book Day recognizes the joy children and adults alike derive from coloring in pages of designs.


Coloring and coloring books have always been popular with children, but adults have become more involved with coloring over the years. Adult coloring, of course, is a huge trend. Many people find that it is not only fun, but also a great way to reduce anxiety.

Coloring provides pleasure in so many settings, with so many colors and styles to choose from. They're portable and come in a variety of sizes. Take coloring books on vacation with you for rainy days or to record a fun memory.

Coloring books also make great gifts all year round. Be sure to have a coloring book and colors in the guest room for downtime when someone visits. At the office, hold a variety of books in the breakroom for co-workers to fill up.
