Painting rocks isn’t anything new as a craft, but I really like the idea of The Kindness Rocks Project. Rocks are painted with inspirational, encouraging, or just fun messages and images, and then hidden (mostly in plain sight) around your town or library for people to find. I think it could make an excellent passive program for patrons of all ages, and doesn’t require a lot of expensive materials – just rocks, acrylic paints, and paintbrushes.
