Coloring books are not just for kids any more.
Earth Explorer Toys will start a Wine and Coloring group at Hopwood Cellars Winery, 12 E. Cedar St., Zionsville.
“The latest trend is many different adult coloring books,” said Sara Jenkins, social media consultant for Earth Explorer Toys. “It’s been shown that it can reduce stress. It’s kind of something that adults can work on to relax. It’s kind of something mindless you can do and unwind.”
There are sessions scheduled between 6 to 8 p.m. March 2 and 16.
“This is the first time we’ve tried anything like this so we’re anxious to see how it turns out,” Jenkins said. “The response has been positive so far. We thought it would be a great girls night out but it’s open to anyone to come. Whoever is interested can come. We’re trying to spread the word. We’re reached out the moms of preschoolers groups.”
Jenkins said there are flyers at both Hopwood Cellars and Earth Explorers, 27 E. Pine St., Zionsville.
Earth Explorers carries a large line of more than 25 adult coloring books.
“They are welcome to bring their own coloring books and markers, pens or colored pencils,” Jenkins said. “We’ll be there with some free pages from coloring books, some pens and markers. We’ll also bring books for purchase if anyone wants to purchase a new one, they can look at our selections.”
In addition to wine, Hopwood Cellars offers meats, cheese and breads to purchase.
