Kindness Rocks

Our June Crafternoon was dedicated to painting Kindness Rocks. And we have lots of Kindness Rocks ready to go out into the world. Please visit Sheila's Garden to find the rocks that our kids decorated to bring kindness and good cheer to others. Also, there are some unpainted rocks so you can create your own Kindness Rock if you would like.. Please do remember that Kindness Rocks should not be left in LNT (Leave No Trace) areas like National Parks and Forests. If in doubt ask. But we know there are lots of people who could use a kind word or gesture or encouragement who would love a Kindness Rock. Check.It.Out. and Make.It.Happen.
