We’ve had colourful rainbows and spoons with personalities, and now we have painted rocks to cheer us up!

2020 has been a challenging year in so many ways – and sadly, things are deteriorating in many places. although improving in Victoria and Australia – so it is heart warming to see people making efforts to cheer others. Like with Christmas lights and external decorations, it’s all about sharing kindness and cheer in simple ways so we want to share that.

Lately, we have spotted some rocks of different sizes popping up along walking tracks near our home and between some Spoonville villages. Some are just colourful, some have lovely messages, but all have made people smile as they walk past.

If spoons and rainbows aren’t your thing, maybe painting and distributing some rocks is a way for you to share happiness this year. What message or image would you paint? Maybe we’ll be spotting some Christmas themed rocks in a month or so!
