Adult Coloring Books - Relax and Get Creative

When I was a kid, I loved to color.  I remember my aunt used to sit with me and color too.  When I had a baby sitter, my favorite ones were the ones who colored with me.  I guess they were all ahead of their time because adult coloring books are insanely popular almost three decades later.  I still love being crafty and getting creative.  I downloaded some apps for coloring, but it's not the same at all. I need the real thing in order to relax.  

Adult Coloring Books - Relax and Get Creative
Coloring is a great way to relax and unwind after a stressful day.  What better way to relax than going back to a childhood favorite?  My kids are 8, 10, and 13 now, and my younger two will color with me after school.  I love just sitting and talking and spending time with them.  Here are some of my favorite adult coloring books.
