Adult Coloring Books Can Help Relieve Stress In Our Senior Citizen Friends
When I was looking for ways to keep Mom entertained, I sort of ran out of ideas until I was perusing a local Michael’s craft store and ran across coloring books! It was like a lightbulb went off over head.
I loaded up with the most mature coloring books I could find (no Disney characters allowed) and, surprisingly, I found some outstanding choices like the ones you see below. I also found some very fun color by number kits which I blogged about (you’ll got to them if you click that link).
I bought Mom a new box of crayons (everyone should have a new box of crayons) and we were off and running. I still have some of her colored pictures in a keepsake box. They’re quite lovely.
So, if you haven’t tried coloring fun, don’t knock it. Grab a couple of books and a new set of crayons and head over to your favorite senior citizens home today. I’ll bet you’ll be surprised at the fun you’ll have.
Thick Crayons And Coloring Pencils
If arthritic hands are an issue, buying your senior citizen friend some easy-to-handle thick crayons can help them hold the crayons. The triangular crayons specifically have great reviews.
