My dad taught me this technique one day decades ago, and I still remember how special I felt as he sat and colored with me that afternoon!
When a child has to “wait” for any reason (like waiting for dinner, for an appointment, or for you to be ready to leave the house!), suggest coloring as a way to pass the time. When kids complain of being “bored”…. encourage coloring!
Promotes social interaction. Coloring with others and sharing your latest projects keeps you socially active and engaged with others; plus, it’s a great activity to enjoy with your grandchildren!
Benefits of Adult Coloring Books for Seniors
The pressures kids experience come from a variety of places…. school, friends, family, health problems (their own or a loved one’s), social media, and on and on. The amount of stress each child can tolerate will vary. But eventually the effects of stress can begin to show, often with stomach aches or headaches, sleeping or eating disorders, behavior problems…. and even depression.
To be fair, I need to mention the argument against coloring…. some believe (strongly!) that coloring stifles imagination in kids. They argue that it’s better for kids to create their own art than to color in someone else’s drawings. But one does not have to be exclusive of the other! I vote in favor of coloring in addition to having plenty of opportunities for artistic expression. There are times when creating art can involve more decisions and problem-solving than a child is mentally or emotionally up for making. As a stress-reducing outlet, coloring promotes a peaceful meditative state where no decisions need to be made other than choosing pleasing colors. And sometimes that’s just what the doctor ordered!
Brings back a youthful feeling and memories. Coloring books for seniors can help bring back those stress and worry-free days of childhood, and those happy memories can further help you relax and unwind, ultimately boosting your energy and mood.
