Take a break and have some fun with this collection of free, printable coloring pages for adults. All the coloring pages are designed specifically for adults with beautiful intricate designs that will make you smile while you take a few minutes just for you.

Coloring can be incredibly relaxing and as you color these grown-up coloring pages, you can let your mind wander or simply concentrate on your coloring. Afterward, you'll likely feel refreshed and ready to get on with your tasks for the day.

I also have a group of beautiful mandala coloring pages that are adults-only as well. These will really help you relax with their swirls and lines. 

If you don't have any colored pencils you can steal from your kiddos, you can find some lovely colored pencil sets that you can keep all for yourself.

If you're looking for more ways to stretch your brain muscles, I also have a list of tough word search puzzles that you can print for free.
