Over the past two years, interest in adult coloring has and continues to spread as adults rediscover a childhood pastime and embrace adult coloring as a new norm. Some may enjoy the craft’s therapeutic benefits. Others see sitting down with a box of crayons and a coloring book as an alternative to watching a flickering screen.
