Kindness rocks are part of a world-wide scavenger hunt where people paint stones with messages or images and place them in locations for others to find as a “random act of kindness”.

We found our first kindness rock on one of our favorite walks along the Benicia waterfront.  I had a vague idea of the kindness rock movement, but had some questions:

What is this “Kindness Rock” thing all about?
I found a painted rock! Now what?
How can I make my own kindness rocks?
