5 Fantastic Coloring Books for Kids

For those summer days spent indoors, here are some beautiful coloring books to keep young artists busy for hours!

Mindfulness Coloring Book for Children: A Fantastic Introduction to Mindfulness for Children by The Future Teacher Foundation, All Ages

The Mindfulness Coloring Book for Children is more of a soothing experience rather than a simple activity book, chock-full of calming shapes and patterns that help to enhance a peaceful sense of well-being whilst encouraging concentration skills and mindfulness. (Perhaps the perfect little distraction for overactive little ones with little or nothing to help them expend their energies between summer outings and day trips!) Every page can be removed so that you can frame or display your children’s finished masterpieces to further develop mindfulness and a sense of pride in the coloring and creating.
