Things to Paint on Rocks (Ideas for All Ages)
The Kindness Rocks Project is really starting to take off in my neighborhood. We have a Facebook group where people share the rocks they’ve found. My challenge has been figuring out interesting things to paint on rocks.
Yes, I’ve let that limit me. So I was excited to receive a Kindness Rocks kit and finally have a reason to just get started!
Sometimes, it’s easy to make something simple feel like a big deal, but you don’t have to have the perfect things to paint on rocks!
One message at just the right moment can change someone’s entire. day. outlook. life.
Your message could be just the one that someone needed on the day they find your rock!
