Is scratching the new colouring for adults?
Grown-ups can now get in touch with their inner child by scratching their way to wellness

Colouring books have been all the rage for grown ups for a while now, with people loving the creative and therapeutic benefits they provide.

Following on from this, Korean company Lago has taken another page from a popular children’s craft pastime – scratching. Called “Scratch Night View” their series features beautiful scenes of cities, which promise a stunning surprise view after specified areas are scratched off.

The clever design comes with a special board and a distinctive scratch pen “to help unveil the beauty hidden in the darkness!” The repetitiveness of the scratch strokes, coupled with an achievable end goal offers the same path to mindfulness that first captivated adult colouring fans.

The realisation that grown-ups love colouring books just as much as kids caused a boom in the market with publishers clamouring to meet demand. The result has seen countless artistic tomes popping up in bookshops spanning exotic landscapes, cute animals and intricate, relaxing mandalas.

We’re big fans of this phenomenon here at MiNDFOOD too, offering a beautiful page for your colouring pleasure every month.
