National Coloring Day

National Coloring Day

Coloring is a fun and enjoyable pastime that’s not just for children. National Coloring Day was established to recognize the joy and relaxation that coloring can bring.

In the 1880s, the first coloring books were created so students could color and get art education. It all started with the McLoughlin Brothers. This company eventually became part the Milton Bradley Company. They continue to make games today.

Coloring books were a popular choice for children up to the beginning of the 21st century. In the 2010s, coloring books for adults began to be published. Johanna Basford’s Secret Garden and Enchanted Forest were the two most popular adult coloring books over the next few decades.

The popularity of coloring books rose to the top and many other activities were developed, such as apps for smartphones or programs that allow you to color on your computer. However, nothing can compare to coloring in a coloring book with crayons and colored pencils.

National Coloring Book Day is a great time to celebrate the beauty, joy and therapeutic benefits of coloring.

These are some fun ways to celebrate National Coloring Day.

National Coloring Day is an excellent time to visit a bookstore or art shop and get a new coloring book. You can choose between colored pencils or crayons, or both. You can then take your new coloring book with you to a café, park, or other relaxing place and have lots of fun coloring.

You don’t need to color alone. Invite a few of your friends to join you for a National Coloring Day party. Serve finger food and beverages. Remind everyone to bring their coloring books, favorite crayons and colored pencils.
