Decorate the Plastic Bag

Write a Note to the Recipient and Decorate the Envelope

Use the enclosed materials to write a card and decorate the envelope. Express your encouragement and include a hopeful message.

Surprise Kyndness

Decorate the outside of the journal with a picture or uplifting message. Use random pages in the journal to write short uplifting messages, draw small colorful images, or create fun writing prompts for the recipient.

Worry Stone

* Worry stones are smooth, polished rocks used for relaxation or anxiety relief to help one feel grounded. The stone is meant to be kept in one’s pocket. The physical act of massaging a worry stone for several minutes is proven to provide therapeutic & psychological benefits that help soothe your nervous system, reduce stress and anxiety, and help clear your mind so you can focus and think clearly.
 On one side of the drawstring bag write an inspirational or calming word. Examples: hope, love, grow, breathe, dream, courage, wonder. Tip: Place a piece of paper or cardboard in the bag before decorating to prevent the marker from bleeding through.
