Wonder of Coloring

Ever think about the wonder of coloring? For children it is like opening a new world. For adults it is like remembering a world they once new. It enhances creativity and makes you think outside the box. Coloring stimulates the brain and enables people to express themselves through art. What child doesn't say when they grow up that coloring was one of their favorite pastimes as a kid?
So coloring books can get kind of pricey right? Especially when younger kids destroy each page by scribbling random colors all over the picture without paying any attention to the lines. But that is my darling's work of art you will tell me. Yes, I understand that no matter what it looks like you will hang it on your fridge--and so would I. But let's get a little realistic here. ;)
