Last summer, the crayon brand introduced special markers, colored pencils and their own label of Coloring Escapes for grown-ups. Department stores like Kohl’s and Target both sell the coloring pages in sets.
For example, you receive a boxed kit that contains 25 sheets of detailed line art on heavy-weight paper stock with 40 fine line markers in a gorgeous vibrant palette. The kit features an array of nature, patterns, mandalas and geometric designs to enhance.
Adult Coloring Is Really Brain Power
Crayola gets it and has understood the benefits of coloring for decades. The research agrees.

It’s a calming exercise that can reduce anxiety, stress, create focus and allow for self-expression.
