I'm browsing for some ideas or activities my clients can do. While looking, I found a bunch of coloring pages called "mosaics." I couldn't find an explanation of what it is. Can someone please explain to me how this kind of coloring should be done? Probably a stupid question, but I'm putting it out there anyway!

Thank you!

Good point Janet, we will update these activities with more info.

Mosaic coloring pages are a fun way to sharpen motor skills and release tension. Just like meditation, coloring allows us to switch off our brains from other thoughts and focus only on the moment. It is a calming and therapeutic pastime.

Is there something special to do that makes it a 'mosaic'?

I think that is what Janet was asking

Hi Teresa
I am not sure what makes it a mosaic except that it is abstract coloring
I really like mandala art

Per Google:
A mosaic is a pattern or image made of small regular or irregular pieces of colored stone, glass or ceramic, held in place by plaster/mortar, and covering a surface. Mosaics are often used as floor and wall decoration, and were particularly popular in the Ancient Roman world.
