Inspirational Rock Craft

Stones Painted with Inspirational Messages

Kids can make Inspirational Rocks for themselves or for someone who may need a little boost in confidence. They can also play Rock Hide and Seek with them and leave them for anyone to stumble upon and brighten their day. It is a good project to remind them that kindness can be contagious and they should pass it on. It might be fun to make one for each of your neighbors especially the older ones to give a boost to their day.
