In addition, coloring can increase the production of endorphins in your body by up to 40%. Endorphins are chemical compounds released naturally by the brain in response to intense pleasurable activities like exercise, listening to music, eating chocolate or any other pleasurable activity.

When a child or adult is coloring, they can also practice mindfulness and their fine motor skills. For younger children, talking about the butterflies can also introduce science and nature lessons and create a language rich environment.

Or, not to be a total buzzkill here….just have fun! Coloring can be just plain fun with no added feature.

I like that one because you can be creative with the negative space around each butterfly. And, it’s less visual clutter for those who need less visual clutter on a page to focus.


Last, but certainly not least, here are some butterfly bookmarks to color.
