Think about how the crazy world we live in is. Now think about how you can change one person’s day. Can one rock bring an individual who is having a bad day some happiness? Quite simply, yes. One rock can make a person feel loved by a stranger. As a result, that person will smile and know the world is not so crazy after all.

When my daughters found their rocks on their bike ride, they were ecstatic. Now, I forsee me buying rocks so that we can return that feeling of happiness in someone else’s life.

How to make a Kindness Rock

First, head over to your local craft or home improvement store and purchase a bag of good size rocks. There is no particular size required. Second, grab some paint, and paint all your heart desires. You could do a memorial rock, or sunset, inspirational quote, or a nature scene. After painting them, I would recommend a good finishing spray to protect the paint. I mean, after all, these will most likely end up outside.

Last, you hide them.

Where to Find and Hide Kindness Rocks

Quite simply, you can find these beautiful rocks anywhere and everywhere at the same time. For instance, I have found them at the grocery store in the freezer section. In fact, my daughters found some on a bike trail near our home. Some find them in their local parks, or even at a local event.

Many Facebook communities have groups for specific areas. Such as Volusia County Rocks. I would recommend that you find a local group near you. If there is no group, you can easily create one. If you join a group, you can post your rocks and tell where they are hidden. Someone may decide to go looking for yours. They may choose in turn, to replace it with a rock they have previously found or painted themselves.
