Coloring books to encourage creativity?

I can't believe that I am looking to buy one of these at the moment, but Creatlive Live got me thinking about it already. I am looking through Amazon and wanting to buy a coloring book. Yea I have a 2-year old and a 4-year old, but I want to grab it for myself. I must be crazy! Check out the post from Creative Live about coloring books and the benefits of creative thinking and stress relief that it brings. That is all they have to tell me! If it is good for me, then I want to jump in on it, because I still love coloring. When we go to restaurants, I am the one that takes the crayons and tries to color in the things with my kids. IΒ can't help it. Coloring is still fun and if there is an adult version, then I would be all about it.

I can only imagine that the designs would be much better than the cartoon characters that my kids watch. I can only imagine how cool it would turn out when every page is colored. I really am all about this!

Here are some of the points on why Creative Live said that coloring books were awesome: creative exercise, digital detox, it's just fun, stress relief, free thinking. Sounds all good to me!

I am pretty sure that I am going to get laughed at for this, but I am going to go in on a coloring book:

Don't hate!
