National Coloring Book Day

August 2 is the official National Coloring Book Day.  The efforts of Dover Publications brought about this national day just last year.  That makes this the second annual celebration. Dover Publications has been around since 1941 and created the first adult coloring book in 1970. Adult coloring book sales have escalated recently with an estimated 10 million +  books being sold last year. In addition to being a relaxing pastime, I would imagine the surge in popularity brings back fond memories of childhood just like the popular new app, Pokemon Go!

Celebrate National Coloring Book Day, August 2!

As a result of the growing popularity many stores like Barnes & Noble, Target and Michael’s have increased their inventory.  Michael’s carries over 300 different adult coloring books!  Furthermore the books are now appearing on Amazon’s bestselling book lists!

You can get the official 2017 mini coloring book by clicking on this link here. Signing up to access this book also enters you for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate from Dover Publications.  In addition I’ve attached several pdf’s below that you can download and print.

 You can also click here to find a coloring party in your area. Of course many people create their own coloring parties complete with wine and snacks by inviting guests through an event created on Facebook.

So, get busy stocking up on supplies and color, color, color!

And be sure to leave a comment and let everyone know how you plan to celebrate National Coloring Day!

  1. I love these! This is also something that my boys could sit down with me and we could do together now that they are a bit older.

  9. visiting from Coffee and Conversation. You had me at pumpkin. As an October baby I love anything pumpkin. Thanks for sharing. I’m going to enjoy coloring while I dream of cooler days and pumpkin spice lattes!

  10. is it not interesting that what we knew for years that coloring can clear your mind and relave stress for a moment is something that others are just learning. I have a daughter with stress disorder that loves to color
    come over see us at http://shopannies.blogspot.com

  11. I think adult colouring pages are a great way for adults to unwind. They are creative but not stressful, fun to complete and easy to store.
