Kindness Rock Movement

The Kindness Rock Movement started somewhere in the Pacific Northwest. Someone started painting rocks, sealing them, and then leaving them outdoors for others to find.  

When you find a rock, instructions lead you to a Facebook page and upload a picture of the rock to let the club know that you found one. Once you see one of these unique rocks, you can’t help but want to join in all the fun.

What’s so special about these groups, is that they go out of their way to spread joy in others lives.  When they find out that kids with special needs are going to be playing in a certain area, the rock angels “hide” plenty of rocks for the kids to find.  

A children’s hospital in Seattle lets everyone “hide” rocks in the hospital for the patients. Seniors who felt like they were no longer needed are hard at work painting rocks to spread the mission even further.

Children love to create works of art, knowing they’re going to brighten someone’s day when they hide the rock to be found. This movement teaches kids to tap into their creative side and to do something nice for others.

Book Review

This book is a must-buy, in my opinion. It’s the perfect way for children to improve their art skills and have fun doing it simultaneously. Not only will kids love this book, but adults just getting started will as well.

Geometric shapes, numbers & letters, hearts, faces, flowers, mushrooms, dominos, shellfish, chess pieces, a multi-pebble rabbit, word stones, houses, shells, vehicles, sky themes, and tic-tac-toe are just some of the ideas Bac features in Stone Painting for Kids.

Now I know you’ve been dying to get a little peek into this beautiful book. It’s a good thing Amazon lets you do just that. Just click on the picture and go to the top right corner and it will let you look inside.

I hope this post inspires you to pick up a paint brush and encourage your children to do the same.

Thanks for stopping by! I’m so happy you found us.
