Kindness Rocks at CBH

FIND ONE. PLACE ONE.

From the Kindness Rocks Project website: Peace, love and understanding can only be achieved when we seek to create for the common good. We must be mindful to the needs and opinions of others to become an agent for peace. It is the mission of TKRP to bring light to that process. Our main purpose is to promote kindness, whether with Kindness rocks or other cool unexpected random ways. That is our main goal! Dropping 1 rock with encouraging words on it in a public place can be inspirational, dropping hundreds could undo any good intentions you have created.

How it works: (from TKRP website)

STEP #1  YOU WILL NEED SOME ROCKS!

Flat smooth rocks work best. Check out your local craft store or garden center as they typically sell smooth river stones. The 3″ to 5″ size work best!

STEP #2 PREPARE THE ROCKS BY SPRAYING OR PAINTING THEM WITH NON-TOXIC SPRAY/PAINT (AVAILABLE AT ANY CRAFT OR HARDWARE STORE)

This will prepare the rock surface for your artwork/writing and seal the rock so your paint pens will last longer

STEP #3 USE OIL BASE SHARPIE PAINT PENS OR OTHER PAINT TO CREATE YOUR ARTWORK

Sarpie paint pens work best… and are easy to work with, and last a long time. 

For ideas, search painted rocks on Google or Pinterest.

BE SURE TO ADD…#THEKINDNESSROCKSPROJECT  to the back of each rock you drop so others can join us and share their pictures when they find one, that way you can follow the journey of your rock…

STEP #4  FINALLY PAINT A FINAL COAT OF NON-TOXIC CLEAR SEALANT 

This will protect the artwork from the elements and the paint from altering the environment… brush on Modge Podge outdoor sealant works great!

#5 PLACE ONE

*When dropping your rocks or installing an Inspiration Garden, be sure to acquire permission. It is our goal to promote respect and consideration for others while spreading kindness. It is frowned upon to drop anything in our National forests and National Parks, where they have a LNT (Leave No Trace) policy for visitors. Please visit our blog for further information on respecting our environment. NEVER EVER LEAVE MARKERS OR PAINT FOR OTHERS TO ADD INSPIRATION, AS YOU CANNOT BE SURE THAT PEOPLE WILL BE RESPECTFUL TO THE ENVIRONMENT!
