Color Creative

March 31st is Crayola Crayon day so today I thought I’d share some sites that you can get pictures to color from, some for kids and some for adults. I know, it may not sound like an adult activity but there’s been a lot of research done recently about how great it is for our stress levels and even therapeutic.  You can always buy coloring books for all ages on lots of sites online and many stores carry them too.  Whether you prefer crayons, colored pencils or markers, any day is a great day for taking time for a little coloring.
