Coloring sheet with NFPA logo at the center and the words: Plan 2 Ways Out of Every Room

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.
