Want a fun DIY craft that also incorporates spreading kindness? ❤️
Consider painting rocks with encouraging words on them, either by yourself or as a fun and frugal family activity! Then you can place them in various spots around your community or gift them to friends or family to share in the smiles.
I recently painted kindness rocks with my kids, and we loved it so much! It’s such a creative social distancing activity.
What is the Kindness Rocks Project?
Meagan Murphy from TheKindnessProject.com is the creator of this popular social movement that encourages a community to connect through positive messages painted on rocks.
The idea is that someone can see this message while outside in their neighborhood, and potentially have it change their entire mood or day.
Here’s your chance to spread some love and kindness around the community in an inspiring way!
Here are my best tips for making DIY painted kindness rocks:
- We have rocks in our yard that were perfect for this craft project, however, you could always go on a nature walk to find some beforehand. Another idea is to purchase smooth flat rocks online via Amazon.com.
- I used acrylic paints we already had on hand and then purchased some oil-based Sharpie paint pens. Those definitely help you create wording and doodles on your rocks easily.
- Sealing the rocks using Mod Podge is an important last step so that your masterpiece will stay on the rock longer.
- For easier clean-up, consider covering your work surface with paper or plastic first before starting this paint project.

I love how anything goes with this project!
There’s no right or wrong way to paint your rocks. It was super therapeutic to just sit down and be creative with the kids for a couple of hours, and something I think you’ll enjoy doing, too.
It’s also fun to go hiking and come across rocks like these outdoors! 🙌
Here’s some more painted rock inspiration from my sidekick Angie, who did this project recently with her family! Her kindness rocks are so cute, too!
