Remember that kid in primary school who carried a briefcase like a Wall Street broker, filled to the brim with twistable crayons in every shade imaginable? They were the envy of the class, the Picasso of the playground, and the height of cool when your teacher’s strict regime said it was time to colour in.

Whether you prefer your Crayolas or Faber-Castells, colouring in is just as enjoyable for those who’ve swapped their sippy cups for tumblers. It’s like creative meditation that’s scientifically proven to help reduce stress and anxiety (@ all you Type As: colouring in the lines is optional!). To help your imagination reach its nirvana, we’ve rounded up a bunch of free, downloadable colouring pages that you can crank out the printer and hue up ‘til your heart’s content.
