Let me tell you about the kindness rocks project.

The goal is to promote random acts of kindness to people who are least expecting to find it. Paint some rocks that make people smile – add #thekindnessrocksproject to the back of the rock (i found paint them first, then do details in sharpie once rock is dry works best), and go leave them around your neighborhood for others to find.

My neighborhood has a facebook group so when you are ready to drop off rocks, you can let others know, or when you find a rock you can post it to the group.

We sent one batch out into the wild a few weeks ago, and have been on the lookout for more since – no luck in our neighborhood, but last weekend when we went to the city we ┬áparked in a parking garage and after i hit the button at the elevator i looked down and….

This was waiting for us!

We plan to make more rocks this weekend and spread more love throughout our town!
Let me know if you are planning to join along!

Milo had his friend over on friday, and since easter is this weekend, I wanted to find a fun project for them to work on. I didn’t have yellow paper, so i had the boys use finger paints to paint some paper yellow. Once it dried I cut out the pieces and had them glue it to the paper. They did yellow handprints for wings, and orange handprints for feet. They drew some hair on their chicks and that was that! This kept them busy and they really had fun doing it.

Happy easter everyone!

306. toddler art turned creatures.

I saw something like this on pinterest and thought it would be a fun little thing to do with milo. At first he wasnt having it. He freaked out when I added eyes to it. I had to quickly remove the eyes and let him keep working… But then he asked me to draw a mouth on the dragon (the red one) and once he started to see it come to life, he wanted to put eyes on it. Then he made a fish (the green one) to follow the dragon. Loved how these turned out! And I love how it made milo use his imagination to make something really cool. Check out how great he wrote his name too!

Teamwork!
Milo and I worked on this┬áStegosaurus…and had alot of fun doing so! Milo did a great job on the painting, don’t you think?!

218. door makeover.

Our old door had a crack in it, so my friend patched it up, which means we needed to repaint. Instead of just touching up the messed up part, we decided to go all out and do a whole new color! Took alot of fretting over colors, (i’m not a good decision maker) – but we went with this teal blue color and I LOVE it. It inspired me to order a new light for the porch and now I’m on a mission to find a new door knocker, mail box and numbers that are more fitting to who we are. It is really amazing how just a coat of fresh paint can make you feel so fresh and inspired!
