Hands up who knew adult colouring in existed and apparently it is now a “in thing” to do, openingly at that too (no need to hide it at home). I used to love colouring in as a child I would spend hours doing it and I won’t even go into my stationary obsession. Myself and my bestie spent so long picking new pens and pencils on a Saturday afternoon we rarely did anything else!
So when I spotted Fatmumslim’s post the other day on adult colouring in I did what every art & crafts mummy would do I printed them all out, and got my derwent pencils sharpened and at the ready (i also had to print the boys some superhero colouring in pages too I might add) and got down to it. It was great I spent ages on one sheet and I’ve just finished another one today I feel calm and better for it.
So why colour in, well it is supposed to calm and relax you and make you less anxious and I whole heartedly agree! I encourage everyone to give it a go….now I’m just waiting to go shopping so I can buy my very own adult colouring in book.
