I started to write up a fast blog post about some great adult coloring books and ended up getting carried away so I turned that blog post into a page on my blog. Click here for more options: Coloring Book Fun.
So, when I was writing up this post, I found some other interesting items on Amazon.com. Remember those old paint by number pictures where you could become an instant artist?! Well, how about a color by number where your favorite loved one can do the same thing! I love this idea as gifts for the younger generation. That picture to the left is of my darling Dad making me a card which is now one of my favorite possessions – ever.
The only problem I can think of with these color by number kits is that arthritic hands may have problems holding the coloring pencils. So, I’ve added a link below to some good pencil grips – Mom used these on her ink pens as she aged. They made holding the pen much easier.
