Commemorative 2015 Adult Colouring Book

Christmas 2015 truly was the year of the adult colouring book.

Christmas 2015 truly was the year of the adult colouring book.

In a completely fabricated survey, it has emerged that one in three Irish adults was gifted an adult colouring book this Christmas. This is an alarming statistic.

Having researched these colouring books, I can confirm that they are difficult, probably an advanced level of colouring, which I am certainly not qualified for. The lines are simply too close together, meaning the margin for error is enormous.

Hence, I have put together some easier and more enjoyable designs for colouring, based on some of the biggest stories of 2015. Print and colour to your heart’s content.
