01 | Coloring Books and Pages
One simple way to entertain kids is to bust out the crayons and get coloring! Coloring books are easy to travel with, providing a way to get creative without needing a lot of supplies. When coloring, attention is drawn to the colors and shapes on the page, making it a great way to get kids to focus their attention. It’s easy to download a coloring book if you need one in a hurry. Our Color of Nature Coloring Book celebrates the animals in the Hammermill Habitat® and will help your kids appreciate the color and beauty in nature.
Coloring can also be a great opportunity to learn. There are many coloring books that include facts or a brief lesson for learning. Kids can find out facts about the life of forests and paper production while coloring in animals and leaves. Learn how to identify leaves from the most common trees in the United States with leaf coloring pages. Sometimes you may just want to color away. In that case, coloring pages that can be connected together to create a giant poster might be a good way to go.
Parents can color too! Coloring books for adults have become more and more popular since studies have shown that they can help alleviate stress. When you get immersed into coloring, your mind enters a meditative state that helps promote a sense of calm. You are more apt to achieve mindfulness since you are focused on one relaxing task. Not only do coloring books help lower stress levels, they can also help boost your creativity and productivity. Ready to get started?

Coloring books are more than just relaxing. They can help improve motor skills for little ones, as well as improve sleep. The light from electronic screens before bed can make it harder to fall asleep at night. Choosing to color in a coloring book before bed can help you wind down without getting exposure to disruptive screens.
