Recently I've been looking into colouring in as a means of meditation. I bought a stack of colouring in books for 'research' and last week when my sister came to visit I sat down with her and tried out some colouring in.. it's addictive and really focuses your mind. I find that in every day life my mind rarely stops running, but when I coloured in I just felt calm and peaceful - I know it sounds weird but it works! I thought I'd play around and design my own colouring in page, download and print it off here for FREE!

This is aimed for adults, so it could be a bit tricky for young ones but I'm sure it'd still be fun! 

Let me know if you give it a go and post to instagram using the hashtag #beetleshackcolour

Happy colouring!
