Kindness rocks — literally! The inspirational movement is in full swing all over Baltimore this summer. It’s the perfect beat-the-heat craft because it keeps little fingers busy and helps brighten someone’s day! 

Make one at home or join one of the workshops around town.

How to Make Kindness Rocks


Rocks (You can find these in your own backyard or purchase smooth river stones at a garden store)
Acrylic Craft Paint
Acrylic Spray Sealer
Paint Pens or Sharpies


Rinse and dry your rocks (especially if you found them outside!)

Using the acrylic craft paint, paint the entire rock. Let dry.

Choose the message you want to write on the rock. Using a paint pen or Sharpie marker, decorate your rock!

After you rock has dried, leave it for someone to find!
