I recently bought a new colouring book ("Secret Garden" by Johanna Basford) after I fell in love with the intricate drawings. I sat down with my 4 girls after dinner a couple of nights ago, each with a different picture to colour, and 2 hours later we were all still sitting there happily colouring and chatting away. (Even my eldest son followed the sound of us laughing and ended up sitting at the table playing us his favourite songs) I think I was enjoying myself just as much as the kids were!
We used sparkly pens instead of felt pens which took longer but meant that we could keep the gorgeous detail. The hardest part was choosing which picture to colour as they are all so delightful.
When was the last time you sat down and enjoyed a bit of colouring in? It is very therapeutic!
