If you're looking for a calming, creative activity, you don't need to look much farther than a pack of colored pencils and some paper. Getting started from scratch can be hard, which is where coloring books come in handy. These free printable coloring sheets for adults feature some fun fan designs, including an adorable Baby Yoda page.
Adult coloring books have gained popularity in the last few years, and it might just be for the sole fact that it's fun to take a timeout with a creative release, without the pressure of creating your own original drawing. It's also pretty relaxing. Although the American Art Therapy Association has said adult coloring is not a substitute for professional art therapy, the organization does recognize that art in any form can carry a "stress reducing value," which is most likely why people describe adult coloring as a zen experience.
Stress-relieving or not, coloring is a fun, relatively easy hobby to get into, even when you have a rather busy schedule. Luckily, there are plenty of choices that include pop culture nods, inspirational people, and even Baby Yoda.
