What can I say, when I see the kids coloring, they often invite me to join. I do have fun with the kids, but to help them advance in their relaxation and coloring skills, I find when I color with adult coloring books, they see me focus, and they increase their focusing skills. Great Places Coloring Book is a great place to start.

About the Coloring Book
Great Places Coloring Book is a coloring book geared toward adults. Using a very light gray-scale copy of photographs, the adults can color and fill in all the blanks how they feel fit. This is not only super relaxing, but it really boost the imagination. It is amazing how many details you have to think of. It gives you a whole new appreciation of art and artists.
A fun idea would be to pick one main color to color in the selected image. Color in that place adding shades and tints where you feel appropriate. Every so often add a small hint of an additional color for contrast.
Example if you chose to do your coloring in blue, have a few blues from light dark. You might want to add a drop of yellow or red do make certain detail pop.
Coloring With Kids
Before you pick a place you want to color. Do a little bit of research on your location. As you and your kids are coloring, if they ask you a question you will have all the answers needed.
Every place has a label on the opposite page. If you choose to rip out one of the pages, you will not know what the location’s name is. I would have liked to have the image on one side and the location name on the other side.
