Coloring books for senior women have come a long way, baby! When I started this fun new hobby about 4 years ago, adult coloring books were hard to find. As more and more of us discovered the joy of simply coloring a few minutes a day, more and more artists created beautiful books for us to color.
You can find funny coloring books, floral coloring books, and even inspirational coloring books. Like so many of you, I am busier than I have ever been in my life! But I always take 15 minutes a day for coloring. Coloring helps me to focus, to rest my mind and relax a bit. I even have coloring on my daily list of things to do! If you have not tried adult coloring books yet, now is the time.
Favorite Coloring Books for Senior Women
My favorite coloring book for seniors by far– this is hilarious! You will recognize so many of the phrases in this book. I think my top favorite page is “Lord love a duck” or maybe “well bless your little heart.”
This coloring book is the perfect gift for a senior with a great sense of humor. Quite frankly, I think most of my friends deserve this one. We all need to giggle while we color, don’t we? I think that’s a new rule, especially for older women — giggling while coloring. Our favorite new pastime. Old women don’t rock on the porch anymore. We quietly color and giggle at the naughty things we are coloring. I think past generations would be jealous – or maybe they stitched naughty words and giggled. I wonder.
Flower Garden Coloring Books for Seniors
For those of us who take special delight in flowers, coloring books of blooms are a treasure indeed. Use a wide range of colors and let yourself explore. There are no grades, no report cards – use the colors that make you happy. Relaxing is the purpose — not perfection.

Inspirational and Motivational Coloring Books for Adults
If you need a lift or a bit of encouragement, why not color the words you want to remember for the day? I keep at least one inspirational coloring book handy. On especially stressful days, I focus on the words and let my heart do the coloring, grabbing colors and trying different techniques. Inspirational coloring books for senior women are always great gift ideas.
