Little kids don't get all the fun - there are some pretty nifty coloring pages and coloring books available  for older children, teens and adults who enjoy coloring.

Adult coloring books (the G-rated variety) feature all sorts of  simple to complex drawings to color. You can find adult coloring books on almost any topic you like - detailed drawings of historical figures or scenes, contemporary coloring posters, mandalas to color, kaleidoscopic coloring pages, fine art masters reproductions ready to color and abstract pictures that challenge your coloring skills and imagination.

Adults and teens often use coloring book pictures to design  crafts patterns for quilting, applique or embroidery. Some coloring pictures lend themselves to crafts such as iris folding or paper piecing. Other  coloring book pictures inspire die cuts for cardmaking and scrapbook layouts.
