When I was a little girl I would sit for hours and color. My mother would always find me tucked away in my bedroom with notebooks, coloring pages and loose sheets of paper. I was obsessed with drawing rainbows and waterfalls and any coloring book with animals. It was away to quiet the world for me. It was a time to just be. Coloring was just always a calming and relaxing activity.
Fast forward 30+ years, my children are the same exact way, especially with the summer upon us. My youngest sons Henry and Benjamin LOVE to color. They remind me of me when I was their age and it’s adorable. Every night since summer began – as I’ve been winding down for the day – my boys are around the kitchen table coloring.
I thought it was time for me to join them! I loved it as a child, so I knew I’d love it just as much as adult, too! When I went hunting for the perfect coloring tools, I knew I needed to check out all the Prismacolor products at Staples. Prismacolor are adult coloring supplies and they are INCREDIBLE, absolutely incredible! The coloring pencils make blending and shading easy!
