August 2nd is National Coloring Book Day

When I was a kid I really loved to color. It was one of my favorite activities. It made me feel so happy and relaxed and I’m sure my mom was thrilled that I was doing a nice quiet activity that helped develop and improve my fine motor skills. Since I grew up coloring has had an explosion in popularity and there are adult coloring books, fancy pens and colored pencils. In our house we’ll be having a family coloring party to celebrate with the Oceans of Possibilities coloring book I made below.

If you’re looking for some fancier coloring for yourself and your older kids you can check out this great Creativebug class 30 Coloring Pages: Get Creative with Colored Pencils.
