Many seniors will like any of the coloring books we have featured on the site already, however, some either because of vision, dementia or fine motor control issues may need to have coloring books for seniors that are better suited to them.
Coloring Books for Seniors
This review says it all “This is a wonderful coloring book. I’m 36, but I have severe arthritis, chronic pain, and several other health issues that lead to my hands being very shaky. Also, when I have to concentrate on the very small designs in some other coloring books, it often gives me a headache. This book is one of only 2 or 3 “simple” coloring books for adults out there. But, really, the designs are not “simple” at all, the areas to color are a bit larger than most you find in adult coloring books. This would be good for anyone: adults who might prefer their coloring areas not be so intricate, those with arthritis or other health problems like me, older adults, and even, perhaps, adults with Alzheimers or bad eyesight. To the author: please, please think about doing more of this kind of coloring book! There is such a need for less intricate books like this. I’ve posted it to the RA website (there is a post that talks about coloring) and also recommended it to friends who are also registered nurses (as I once was) to use in their assisted living centers and nursing homes.”

This pretty nature book was personally recommended by Ruth, one of the members of the Facebook group as a fantastic coloring book for seniors, and I agree with her. It’s perfect! Simple designs yet more realistic than Kimberly Garvey’s, particularly if you are a nature and bird lover.

Fun Coloring Books for Seniors by Thaneeya McArdle
Thaneeya’s books are fun and have simple large areas to color, as well as examples for colors to use both in the front and the back of her books. Kemberlee, one of our reviewers pointed out that lots of seniors were once 60’s & 70’s hippies so they might really enjoy these books even though they aren’t targeted specifically to senior citizens.
Mandala’s for Seniors
Angie Grace also has mandala coloring books for those that have vision issues or prefer larger spaces to shade in with pencils or pens. These books with larger spaces may be better for seniors or younger children that find Angie’s patterns too complex and intricate.
