Kindness Rocks!

Let’s make kindness rocks together.  A kindness rock is a stone that has been
painted with an inspiration message or a positive image.  We love sprinkling positivity by placing kindness rocks in the garden and around the community. 
All ages welcome.
What you’ll need:  
1) Collect a few stones that are flat.  Clean stones with soap and water.
2) Sharpie markers, paint pens, and/or acrylic paint + small paintbrushes. 
If you don’t have acrylic paint, a Silver Sharpie marker works great.
3) Mod Podge or another sealer, if you have on hand (not required)
Contact Jessica if you have any questions.
