The New Joy of Coloring

The Joy of Coloring

Parents, have you ever found yourself coloring in your child’s coloring book and felt yourself travel into a state of ZEN? I had a college roommate that had a stack of coloring books and crayons. It seemed weird in 1994, but after reading this article by Hillari Dowdle it makes sense. My rising 6th grader and her friends have been exchanging mosaic coloring books and special gel pens for birthday gifts. It looks, like coloring is a cool way to release stress. Go to Parade.com/coloring to download free coloring pages. You can Instagram your creations with ‪#‎colormeparade‬ and there will be 5 winners that will get a collection of coloring books!
