8/2 National coloring book day.

Did you know adults are using coloring books to reduce stress by droves?

Busy parents and harried business people will go to great lengths to find the newest and best relaxation method, but the stress-reducer that is soaring in popularity is something that most people haven’t done since elementary school — coloring.

Producers of coloring books for adults can’t seem to print them fast enough.

How can you color if your markers are all dried out or you can’t find your crayons?  Nothing worse for a kid than not being able to color the grass Jungle Green but you can only find Pine Green.  OH NO!!  So before you embark on enjoying National Coloring Book Day is is a great time to clean out the crayons, markers and while you are at it, let’s toss any pens that don’t work.

Toss Pens that don’t write, or are ones you will never use….

  1. I have not gotten into the coloring thing yet….I do like to open a new box of Crayolas though! I have been weeding out my markers and ink pens. As I clean drawers I try them on a piece of paper and if they don’t work or only work “sort of” they are trashed! It is quite freeing to know when I grab a marker it will work!
