I love coloring and always did as a kid. No activity books for me, just plain ole coloring books and I don't really feel to stunted in my development. Cleaning out my office over the weekend I found my plastic carrying case with my 96 Crayola crayons in it !!!

My roomates and I always colored to destress during exams (then again I went to college before there was high speed internet and laptops so we were a bit deprived). I actually would pull the coloring books out every so often until the onset of a husband and 2 dogs. While dogs can digest crayons, they also make a mess when puked up on the carpet at 3 am.

I miss coloring now !
WOW, I am still thinking about coloring - you know what I miss...as I kid I had a story book coloring book that was like 4ft high and 3 ft wide (each page). I used to grab my 96 crayons and take up the entire living room floor on a rainy day and go to town. One page would take a couple of hours. I tried to find one for my neice not to long ago and was seriously disappointed with the art supplies I found at toys r us and Target.

I may have to pull the crayons and coloring book out tonight

I actually have my own coloring books and color pencils that the kids are NOT allowed to touch. It's really relaxing. I have some of these ones. http://www.budgetartkids.com/coloringbooks.html

Another adult colorer here! I print off loads and loads of coloring sheets, because all I can find here are activity books. I may have to order this, it looks like something up my older daughters alley.

Oh how fun to find that so many adults love to color, too! I haven't colored in years, but I want to get a cool coloring book like these you've shared and a new box of crayons!

I am another big kid who likes to color with my kids. However, I have never thought of actually having MY OWN coloring books and colored pencils and crayons! I am going to have to start that right away. Hmmmm, I can't even imagine having crayons that aren't missing their paper, broken in half, never new, etc. Also, the activity books look great too. Thanks for the info!
