Do you realize that these same adults are the ones that are looking for the SpongeBob coloring pages so that they themselves can have as much fun coloring as the children in their lives do? The adults that are looking for these coloring pages are sometimes the very same ones that are saying that they only get these coloring pages for their children or grandchildren; or perhaps their nieces/nephews or other kids in their lives. If this is the way that they want to disguise their own addiction to coloring, so be it. There is nothing wrong with this at all. You have to remember that some older folks were taught to think that coloring on something like SpongeBob coloring pages is best not spoken about or that it is a childish activity that full-grown adults have no business doing except with their children and grandchildren. Although this particular line of thinking is a bit outdated it is what it is and you probably are not going to be able to change it. Some of our best childhood and adult memories are of the times that we simply sat there having a blast coloring.
