Looking for a way to rock your neighborhood with kindness?
Here’s a great way to spread love and kindness to your neighbors: throw a party with a few friends to paint inspiring and kind messages on rocks. Then, have everyone take home their rocks and place them around their neighborhood for people to see.
Not only will you encourage others, but you’ll spend quality time with friends doing something for others, and creating miniature works of art! You could even make these a regular gathering, and switch up the theme each month: encouraging notes, handwritten letters, kindness rocks, etc.
Kindness rocks ideas
There’s a whole community of people sharing ideas for these “kindness rocks” on Pinterest and other social media. Use the hashtag #kindnessrocks to find inspiration. And check out our Pinterest board full of great kindness rock ideas.
Here are a few of our favorite kindness rock sayings and messages (we’re partial to puns):
- It never rains forever
- You’re here for a reason
- You got this
- Be a little boulder
- Bee happy
Keep it simple with messages plainly written, or get creative and jazz it up with drawings, flourishes, and other elements.
There are a ton of variations you could also try:
- Write encouraging messages on sticky notes and hide them in public places for people to find. Be creative with illustrations!
- Leave encouraging and kind messages on mirrors in restrooms. Use a dry erase marker so as not to vandalize.
- Create encouraging chalk art on sidewalks or walkways in your neighborhood.
Did you try any of these? Do you have other ideas for spreading anonymous messages of kindness? Please share in the comments!
