There are so many great coloring books out there, something for everyone. You can get them online or in-store, even downloadable books you can print yourself. I love this Knitter’s Coloring Book pictured above. We also have this Mandala Book and Enchanted Book. Even the kids love these books too,my girls love this Harry Potter Coloring Book! We also love a coloring book that has perforated edges and can be torn out easily and added to the fridge or a frame for decoration!
2. Pencils or Thin Tip Markers
Grab a set of coloring pencils to go a long with your books. Coloring pencils work well for shading and some different textures. Or you could go the marker route and get some thin tipped markers. These work really well for coloring in a bit quicker and have a bold look!
3. Pencil Case
You can get a case that is clear plastic case so you can see through to know what’s inside. There’s also some really darling fabric pencil cases that are fun for carrying around. Either are great for carrying your pencils or markers, or both!

Be sure to grab a small pencil sharpener to stick in the case if you’re using colored pencils – or go all out and get yourself an electric pencil sharpener!
