Coloring is NOT Just for Kids!

Today’s post is a guest post by Amie Carlson, product & marketing manager.

Recently, while on a break from college, my 19-year-old daughter, Molly, and her best friend (and roommate) Alexa came to my office to help me organize my overflowing bookshelves. When they had finished, they asked if they could take home some of our Happy Day coloring books. I let them choose a stack of them as a thank you and forgot all about it.

Then one day after they had returned to college, I came home to find an envelope in the mailbox containing this picture.

It turns out, the girls had spent an afternoon in their dorm room going through all of the coloring books and choosing pictures that reminded them of their friends. They sent them all personalized pictures in the mail at their various colleges . . . which resulted in fun tweets of joy from each girl as she received her picture in the mailbox.

I never would have thought to send coloring books in a care package to my college student, but now I think it’s a great way to let them revisit their childhood and de-stress from the pressures of the real world. Why not pick up some of our Happy Day coloring books for your care package today? Click here to view our collection of coloring books!
