Coloring was a fave pastime of mine when I was a child and to this day I’m happy to sit down with my daughter to color away with crayons, pencil crayons, markers, pastels — you name it. I’m told that this new trend in adult coloring books is perfect for anyone needing to relax and just mellow out — which I’m thinking is just about all parents, so let’s give it a go!

These coloring books for adults are so gorgeous! When you finish your masterpiece, you ought to frame a few for your art wall. Just lovely!

Cool Coloring Book For Adults

Dream Catcher: A Soul Bird’s Journey — Filled with lots of lovely birds and feathered creatures. That’ll be a fave for any nature lovers out there.

Adult Coloring Book: Stress Relieving Cats — Because who doesn’t want to color in kitties all day long! However, if you HAVE a cat at home, they’ll most likely want to lay directly across it while you attempt to relax.

Secret Garden: An Inky Treasure Hunt and Coloring Book — This might just be the one that started it all. In fact, this book is in my daughter’s room right now and she absolutely adores it. We color in it together!

Posh Adult Coloring Book: Vintage Designs for Fun & Relaxation — I love the designs in this book. It looks just like old, vintage wallpaper!

Enchanted Forest: An Inky Quest & Coloring Book — From the same creator as the Secret Garden book and just as wonderful!

Adult Coloring Book: Dream Cities: Color Your Dream — Fun and simple designs of cities from all over. I’m feeling the wanderlust in a big way!

Animal Kingdom: Color Me, Draw Me — For all the animal lovers! I have a feeling this’ll be the next one on my list. My daughter is pretty animal obsessed so she’ll be excited to see this come into the house.

Fantastic Cities: A Coloring Book of Amazing Places Real and Imagined — Take a vacation at the tip of your crayons, my friends. This is just like coloring in your favorite travel pics on Instagram.
