I grew up during the time of doodle art - remember those? You got a pack of felt markers and elaborate black line drawings on a number of themes. I would spend hours coloring these in! Little did I know then that coloring pages were a benefit to my well-being.
The theme: Coloring books generally have a theme of sorts. It might be that they are based on a Disney movie, or it is about animals, or vehicles, or something else. When selecting books for your children, remember that they will want to express their creativity, and will have a lot of fun with any coloring book, but will be more interested in a coloring booklet with a theme that appeals to them. Choose a color book that features their favorite characters, or the item of interest in their life. For example, if your little boy just loves trains, get a Thomas the Train coloring book. If your little girl is as girly as they come, look for the Disney Princess coloring book, or possibly Strawberry Shortcake.
Coloring pages not only enhance concentration skills, eye-hand coordination, color coordination and various other essential skills, they also give you some time to relax with your child. Moreover, coloring papers are so enjoyable and learning that parents give feedback of increased concentration among their children, better coordination of colors etc.
First off, coloring does reduce stress. It brings you back to your childhood, evokes your sweet memories, and transports you to happy times. Pick a coloring app for adults, indulge yourself into detailed drawings, pick the right colors and transform your mood from blue to cheerful. After such a boost, there must be no obstacle for you to finish your working day successfully.

My kids love to use Coloring Pages for fun times and Handy Manny is a frequent request! I like to have a batch of them on standby as well for any journeys we might be going on. They are a great way to make journeys go quicker for the kids and for us parents to get a little more peace! We have also used them at a plane terminal on a long delay to keep the kids occupied and amused. Trust me they can be a real lifesaver.
