Adult coloring books are all the rage right now. Do people still say “all the rage?”
Most of the adult coloring pages that I’ve seen are very detailed and are based on the concept of a zentangle. This creative doodle style is very relaxing and easy to do with just a pencil and paper. I put together this fall coloring book and I’ve got some zentangle inspiration to get you coloring.
Although inspired by adult coloring pages, these are appropriate for kids and adults of all ages. Decorate them as simple or detailed as you like.
What’s a zentangle?
Think of it like scribbling with purpose – and the purpose is to relax. Zentangles don’t really have any rules. According to the creators, it can increase creativity, help you unwind before bedtime, reduce stress, or improve your ability to focus on other tasks. I don’t know about everyone else, but that sounds like exactly what I need.
Self-care doesn’t have to be a big production. Sometimes it just means taking 15 minutes to unwind at the end of the day so your brain will quiet when you lay down to sleep.
Basically, you start drawing a pattern. It can repeat a few times or many. Change patterns as often as you like. You don’t have to have the entire picture planned out and in fact, it’s fun to just start doodling and see where it goes.
Here are a few ideas to get you started:
- polka dots
- plaid / intersecting lines
- concentric circles
- diamonds / argyle
- animal print
- dragon scales
- water waves
Fall coloring book
I made this fall coloring book so that you can doodle on the images and the backgrounds. There’s plenty of blank space, so get creative and have fun.
I had a little fun testing it out. As soon as my daughter saw what I was doing, she asked if she could do a few of the pages.
Coloring is a great family activity. It’s relaxing, which my family definitely needs regularly. It’s also fun to see how each person colors the same page.
You can even use the pages as a starting point for a craft. Print them smaller on cardstock and use them as homemade cards. They can make cute binder covers or dividers too.
