Decorate the Plastic Bag

Decorate the plastic bag. This is what the final kit is distributed in, make this fun and colorful for the recipient to open. 

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.

DIY Affirmation Cards

Write a special affirmation message on each card. Loop the piece of string through the hole punched cards and tie a knot to secure them together. 

Surprise Kyndness

Go through the pages of the sudoku or puzzle book and write uplifting messages, draw small colorful images, or create fun writing prompts for the recipient.
