Coloring for adults
It’s tempting to think that coloring pictures is mainly something for young children, but coloring books for adults have become an increasingly widespread trend over the past years. Of course, images and books designed for adults do differ from those made for children, often featuring far more intricate designs and complex geometric patterns. Mandala coloring books and games are especially popular. These highly detailed patterns really make you wind down and take your time. You might even find that working on these images puts you into an almost meditative state of calm. This shouldn’t come as a surprise though: the mandala is traditionally used as a tool to aid meditation!
Color by number games
Color by number games are another type of coloring activity that has recently made a big comeback through online gaming. Each area of the image is numbered. Find the colors that match each number and paint the areas accordingly to watch the picture come together. There are lots of 2D color-by-number games, as well as some 3D color-by-pixel titles in which you build up three-dimensional items using colored blocks. Have fun playing!
