Every since my daughter started The Rainbow Rock Project for spreading kindness, we’ve been blessed to be involved and surrounded by a wonderful rock kindness community. A kindness painted rocks, sometimes called a kindness stone or rock, is simply a rock that someone has taken and decorated with an inspirational message.
Did you know kindness “Word Rocks” are a thing as is “Rock Hunting?” The premise is simple. Leave inspiring messages or art on rocks to brighten up someone’s day.
If you’re looking for a simple random act of kindness to do with the kids, I can’t suggest word or painted rocks more! What’s great about this project is that it’s low-cost and creative. Go on a nature walk or nearby beach to collect some stones or rocks. And then head home armed with your favorite art supplies to paint inspiring messages.
These days, you can “paint” using a varieity of paint-like markers. We’ve listed a few of our favorites down below, as well as favorite sealants to make sure the colors don’t rub off outdoors.
How can rocks spread kindness?
This painted rock, sometimes called a kindness painted rocks, is simply a rock that someone has decorated with an inspirational message. They can be any size or shape, as big or small as you like! The point of this stone painting is to sprinkle positivity around your community. Once you create one, the idea is to leave it somewhere for another person to find and enjoy. As we all know, sometimes a simple message of love and compassion can spark joy and brighten someone’s entire day.
