DIY Activity at Home: Kindness Rocks

Materials:

  • Small rocks
  • Paint, markers, or any art supplies of your choice

Steps:

  • Take a walk to gather small rocks from your neighborhood or local park.
  • Once you have a good amount of rocks, it’s time to start painting.
  • Get creative with designs and include kind words and positive phrases on your rocks.
  • Once decorated, let dry.
  • Now, you can place them in your neighbor’s yards or on their front doorsteps.
    • You could also place a bucket of your decorated rocks in front of your rocks with a sign letting your neighbors know that they may take one.

Follow-up:

  • What kind words make you feel happy?
  • What do you think being a good neighbor means?
