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.

Coloring pages are a simple and easy way to keep kids happy and entertained while they are learning. The internet is the perfect medium for finding and producing coloring products for kids. Coloring pages are now available in digital form e.g. pdf files. Simply find the pages your child likes, order the product and print out the pages. It's the perfect use of the internet - simple and affordable.
The complexity. Determine your child's level when it comes to coloring. Some color books provide large coloring spaces making it easier for children to color the page, stay in the lines, etc. As the child gets older, their skill level for coloring increases as well, and the difficulty of the book may as well. Some coloring books come with written instructions, and other games, such as a dot to dot, or a maze. If you want to keep your child happy, and still challenge them, choose coloring or activity books in their range or level, and do not frustrate them with books that have too small of pictures, or too many spaces to color, or written instructions.
After spending hectic hours in school kids can relax as they turn on the computer and start colouring. It is a great activity particularly as it replaces paper colouring. Colouring pages aid teachers and other educators with pictures rather than confusing them with the words. Pictures help young children understand what they are taught far better than words ever could. Colouring online is beneficial for young children as it teaches them concentration, self-discipline, dedication, a sense of achievement, complete tasks, the knowledge they had done their best and most importantly to boost their confidence and help them succeed in life.
Occasionally, you'll find official cartoon or TV character sites (such as PBS programs) will make available coloring pages for free to their fans. And there are many other sites that distribute coloring pages of those copyrighted characters. Sounds like dangerous legal ground ...but, surprisingly, I've never heard of any of these sites being prosecuted for copyright infringement. So they'll probably continue to make them available.
You can use the kid coloring sheets you find for fun and also for educating your little ones. Number coloring sheets or counting, connect the dots and other varieties will allow your child to not only enjoy some color time but to also strengthen their brain and learn in the process. Coloring is a great activity to help keep the creative side of the brain alive and well.
