You may have noticed a fun new trend sweeping communities all over the country… hide-and-seek kindness stones! Haven’t heard of this fun, new idea yet? Here’s how it works: simply paint a few stones in bright colors, write kind words and inspiring messages on them, and hide them all around town for other people to find. This is a low-cost activity to do with your friends and family, plus it’s a simple way to show kindness to others and make a stranger’s day. The best hiding places are parks, walking paths, beaches, parking lots, and any outdoor spaces where people gather, especially during warm weather months. Join in the fun and start this incredible trend in your own community!
Here’s What You’ll Need:
Easy Step-by-Step Directions:
- Paint stones or rocks in any colors you’d like. Allow the paint to dry completely and add more layers if needed.
- Use permanent markers to write your message. Share your favorite words, poems, or sayings to inspire a stranger.
- Allow your art to dry for another 5-10 minutes, then paint on a thin layer of Mod Podge® over the entire rock to help seal in your artwork from the outdoor elements.
- Allow your kindness stone to dry for another 30 minutes, then gather your rocks and hide them around town, spreading kindness, love, and good vibes as you go!
