Coloring books are a great option to pick if you don’t want to create your own drawings or if you want to color a lot.
Select your coloring utensils. Popular options include colored pencils, colored pens (e.g. Sharpie brand fine point markers), or art markers (Artist’s Loft Triangle Markers are a good cheap option, while Copic markers are a popular higher-end product).
Note that you are not necessarily limited to actual coloring books, as there are many printable coloring pages designed for adults are available online, many of which are free.
Coloring books are inexpensive and they can be purchased from bookstores, department stores, or online. There is a wide variety of themes to choose from depending on your interests including comics, movies, nature, and animals.
You’ll find images that are stylized or cartoony and others that are more realistic. Older kids may prefer coloring realistic pictures of flora.
Making sure that you don’t press too hard with the colored pencils will also prevent them from breaking.
