This activity is very simple but has a such big impact on the community. We collected smooth rocks outside (the beach is perfect for this) and painted them white. I learned the hard way that it is best to do this with a water proof paint! The kids then used paint pens to write uplifting messages on the rocks. These rocks were then spread out around our community to spread hope and kindness.
There is a bigger global project called Kindness Rocks Project that was started in Cape Cod by Meghan Murphy. There is a beautiful video on her site that explains her project and why she started it.
