Ever wonder how to teach your preschooler compassion?
I have always desired to instill kindness and compassion into my boy’s life aside from showing it myself. – Which let’s be real. It doesn’t always happen that way. Sigh.
I go back and forth in my mind about where we can volunteer and what would be age-appropriate. So far come up with a lot of “we should…”, but not much gets implemented.
The Rainbow Rock Project began with a 7-year-old little girl who is on her journey to spread kindness and joy, one rainbow rock at a time! www.rainbowrockproject.com
Her MISSION is to spread kindness and make people smile. She is doing so by spreading her rainbow rocks throughout the world. She places the rainbow rocks for someone to find, therefore hoping it will make them smile. – How genuine, and how perfect.
Her mom, Agnes has written this fantastic book as well.

The Rainbow Rock Project
Spreading kindness is simple.
Collected rocks from outside.
Drew a rainbow on paper and discussed the color sequence.
Drew a rainbow on the rock.
We reflected on “What is kind?” as I drew pictures of the examples Grey gave me. This was eye-opening. I had no idea he was capable of expressing such specific examples.
We hid the rainbow rock for someone to find hoping to make someone smile.
