Coloring is one stress-reducing activity that kids of all ages can enjoy, yet it’s so basic and commonplace that it’s often overlooked. No special skills or talent are needed for coloring, which is why anyone can enjoy it and feel successful. Coloring requires minimal supplies and is easily portable. It’s a simple hobby that kids can take with them anywhere! Coloring offers a chance to briefly unplug from our technology-filled lives.
Select age-appropriate coloring books by considering the sizes of the shapes to color as well as the content and subject matter of the pictures. Very young children will do better with large, simple shapes and crayons, but keep in mind that smaller shapes can be filled in more quickly than larger ones, requiring less patience. Then pair the tools (crayons, markers, or colored pencils) that will fill in those shapes well, without being too large for the space available.
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.
For years, coloring was considered a child-only activity; a great way to keep the little ones occupied and quiet for a short time. However, in more recent years, adult coloring books have entered the market and started a new craze of sorts. No longer associated only with kids, coloring has been shown to have many therapeutic benefits for adults of all ages.
Alleviates stress. As seniors color, stresses of the day start to disappear as they get lost in their latest design. You essentially forget your troubles while you’re involving in a coloring activity.
Art therapy has long been proven as beneficial to seniors. Studies have shown that seniors who participate in art projects tend to use less medication and visit the doctor less often, and they often experience less depression. Whether art is practiced as a hobby, a career, or even a lifelong dream they’ve wanted to fulfill, it’s clear that using some creativity can improve overall quality of life.
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!
