If you’re looking for Christmas ideas for grandparents who tend toward the creative, consider the adult coloring book. Coloring is great for reducing stress and many find the absorbing repetition relaxing. You don’t have to be an experienced artist to enjoy coloring or find the results satisfying. This is also a great activity for grandparents and grandkids to enjoy together. Buy an adult coloring book in a theme matching the grandparent’s interest. Plant lovers will enjoy a botanical or forest theme, while geography buffs will enjoy a coloring book exploring one of our national parks.
