March Spring Break is here, and after taking time to rest and recharge, I started to work on painting some kindness rocks. You have probably seen many examples of kindness rocks online. The creativity can be incredible. This is a fun project to do as an adult (moi, exhibit one), or with your kids. Gather some smooth rocks, paint a design, and/or positive message on them. I use acrylic paint for best results, and this time, I used acrylic paint pens for the first time! What a game changer! They dry quickly, and allow for painting finer details.
Once the paint is dry, I spray a clear coat of varnish on them to help the paint withstand the elements.
Place the rocks in your garden, or leave them somewhere in the neighbourhood or along a community walking trail for others to find! It is a rewarding way to leave a little kindness for others to find.
Mine will be placed in our school kindness garden, in my own flower beds, and a few will make their way into the community.
