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.

Decorate the Canvas Bag

Use the permanent markers to decorate the canvas bag. Tip: Place a piece of paper in the bag before decorating to prevent the markers from bleeding through. 

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.

DIY Picture Frame

Use the enclosed permanent markers and materials to decorate the outside and inside of the picture frame. The active military member can put a picture in the frame you decorated and be reminded of someone they love daily while they are away.

DIY Paracord Bracelet

Follow this video to make a Paracord bracelet.
*Paracord bracelets started as a way for service members and first responders to carry extra cord in a lightweight, compact manner. Paracord has many uses and can be a survivalist’s best tool.

Surprise Kyndness

Use random pages in the puzzle book to write short uplifting messages, draw small colorful images, or create fun writing prompts for the recipient.
