Below are some ideas you can use the kindness rocks this holiday season

  • leave them out for delivery drivers (we included a sign you can print)
  • top off each place setting with a rock before the holiday dinner
  • put a basket with rocks next to toy or food drive containers for people to take

Below are some ideas where kids can hide their rocks. We recommend placing rocks in places that do not disturb nature or other natural habitats. Be sure not to place rocks in state or national parks and check with your local parks too. 

  1. Store shelves (grocery store, toy store, book store, etc.)
  2. Neighbourhoods
  3. Schools
  4. Library bookshelves
  5. Sports fields
  6. Community centre
  7. Zoo or museum
  8. Restaurants
  9. Parking lot
  10. Swimming pool
  11. Malls or outdoor shopping centres
  12. Sidewalks
  13. Benches
  14. Bus stops

Growth Mindset Rocks Basket

You can also make a Growth Mindset Rocks Basket! Put your rocks into a basket and place it on your front porch, at a community centre, or at your school for others to take. 

It's also a great thing to do for a party!
