According to the Facebook page, the inspiration for these little rocks occurred when Erica saw a segment on the Today Show which prompted her to create a local painted rock community. Apparently these hide-and-seek painted rock communities are spreading across the country. The FB page lists some basic instructions and simple guidelines to follow if you want to participate. The premise is fairly simple - to decorate rocks and hide them in various locations to brighten someone's day. And that is indeed what happened in our case! When Susanna noticed the rocks, she was eager to share her discovery. It is such a simple way to bring a moment of joy and happiness to an unsuspecting person, at the same time it's important to be respectful of the surroundings. The Kindness Rocks Project has some instructions and how-to information if you want more details on rock painting.
Have you discovered any painted rocks where you live?
