Calming Colouring for Busy Kids

Calming colouring for busy kids title

What would parents do without kids colouring activities? It's so convenient, so accessible, so suitable for most abilities ... and it can be so peaceful. 

Everyone big and small needs a little time out sometimes. Colouring is wonderful way to settle down and focus. 

Adults think of colouring as a mindfulness activity. Kids just think it's fun!

Colouring is not about the finished artwork, it's about the joy of starting and creating.

Add some colour to our set of free calming colouring pages to bring them to life.

Now, relax :-)
