Coloring isn’t just for the kids anymore. It’s for the kids and adults. The first commercially successful adult coloring books came on the scene in 2012-2013. Their popularity has grown ever since. People color to de-stress, to self-express, to relax their minds. They’re forming coloring clubs and meeting in libraries, bookstores, and yoga centers. They come armed with expensive pencils, fine line markers, designer crayons, and sometimes a glass of wine.
Now they can shade, highlight, blend, and daringly scribble while learning about fire safety. The NFPA Coloring Sheet, “Plan 2 Ways Out of Every Room," features a key component of this year’s Fire Prevention Week theme. The sheet can be used as a stand-alone activity or paired with all kinds of neat items for all ages from Fire Prevention Week in a Box.
