Beautiful coloring books for seniors
We found some non-childish coloring books that are perfect for seniors. The pictures are realistic and lovely while the subjects will interest many older adults.

The pages are perforated so they’re easy to remove. Colored pencils, crayons, or watercolor paint can be used on the high-quality paper. The lines are gray, so they’ll basically disappear after the pictures are colored in. The finished artwork will look great on display!

At around $5 each, these gorgeous coloring books are definitely worth a try! They could bring your older adult hours of relaxing fun.
