It’s been well established that coloring puts us in a zen space where we can relax and shut out the world. It reduces stress, anxiety, improves our concentration, focus and motor skills and allows us the freedom to be chromatically creative. The adult coloring book trend began in 2012 and it shows no signs of slowing down. People love to color and more and more coloring books are being created with a variety of interesting themes. Here are the newest ones for our home.
Crash Bandicoot Adult Coloring Book
Crash Bandicoot was an immensely popular video game that came out in 1996. A few more videos followed suit and we couldn’t get enough of this darling little rodent. I confess, we have all the video games, but it’s been years since we’ve played the game. The game itself is high paced and high stress, but lots of fun. The Bandicoot coloring book, on the other hand, will allow you to chill out and enjoy coloring scenes from the video game. The book contains 44 separate pages for both kids and adults to enjoy.
Around the World Coloring Book
The Around the World coloring book will expose both adults and kids to celebrations around the world. Discover the famous Mariinsky Theatre and the White Nights festival in St Petersburg, Russia. Did you know that it never gets dark in midsummer, twilight lasts all night. Check out the Balloon Festival in Albuquerque. Pilots come from all over the world to compete in balloon-flying competitions. Or explore the Yeouido Cherry Blossom Festival in South Korea. Cherry blossoms symbolize purity and beauty. Each page is informative and shares interesting facts about a country and has several pictures to color. Secret code: Feria de las Flores.
Mythographic Color and Discover Imagine
The Mythographic coloring book has 58 whimsical hand-drawn illustrations featuring a blend of animals, elegant foliage and hidden objects. On each page, you may find mythological creatures, birds, butterflies, sea life, fruit, feathers and other nature-inspired graphics. Hidden in each of the drawings are unlikely objects partnered with the main theme/animal. The idea is to enjoy the grace of the artwork and find the secret objects within. The artwork is beautifully done with refined lines and delicate details.
