I swear until yesterday, I didn’t had any idea about the existing of coloring books, solely available in market for adults also, besides children. Is this for real? Sure it is as many adults are crazy about it and they love it so much.
To be honest with you, in my country, coloring a book is purely consider as a child activity. Here, adults will spend hours in either playing outdoor sports, hanging out with friends, dining out, watching movies and so much more. Quite frankly, Pakistani adults will do just about anything to pass time and entertain themselves beside coloring a book.
Sure, there are art institutes and colleges in all major cities of Pakistan where subjects of painting, sculpturing and more are taught but if you ask a common Pakistani adult, in his/her 30’s let’s say, about ever coloring a book after they passed school, their reply will probably make you wonder why you asked that question in the first place.
Anyway, I found out about coloring books for adult and I now consider them as not only as a great way to do some creative work, but also a much need activity for that child inside all of us. But then, I may have to buy not just an adult coloring book as Uzair also loves to hold a pencil in his hands these days. Imagine a father and son, sitting side by side or across the table, coloring books. Now that is something really special.
I’m very much thankful to The Historian of An Historian About Town for showing me this very special creative activity for adults. You can check her article by clicking on the link below:
