Coloring books are all the rage now, and I don't mean just for kids, but also for adults. It's a hobby that my kids love to do and I enjoy doing with them.
As a child I spent most of my spare time colouring-in and drawing, it is something I would do with my best friend and we would sit and colour for hours on end. My love for colouring meant I choose Art for a GCSE and wanted to be an artist - although, I found I was better at colouring-in than actually painting, but still I enjoyed the experience, apart from English it was my favourite lesson at school.
There is something special about colouring-in, it is peaceful, and therapeutic.
