We had so much fun at Twin Cities Live in the Rockstar Row! If you watched the segment, you may have seen the random act of kindness we gave out to the audience and I wanted to share the idea with you all! It is great for the holiday season and is overall pretty simple!
- Clear bag. We used self sealing bags that my mom found at a garage sale, but really any bag could work - even a clear ziplock bag.
- Cocoa mix. We got the kind with marshmallows because I don't recommend putting marshmallows in the bag itself to people you don't know.
- Hershey kisses. The Santa hats are a Target exclusive this season!
- Candy Cane
- Snowman soup template. You can find both a PDF and a JPEG version here. The JPEG can be easily re-sized if needed! It could also be attached to the outside of a bag with a ribbon if needed.
- Kindness cards, Click here to request your own!
Enjoy and have a great holiday season!
I can't believe its already time for Halloween! To me, it's the first real sign of fall. I put together these super cute "You've Been Booed" bags this weekend and wanted to share the idea with you all!
Things I used for this project (all items that I didn't already have are from Target):
-White gift bags
-Orange and black tissue paper
-Orange and white twine
-This "You've Been Booed" template
- Kindness Cards, of course!
- Candy and Halloween goodies
- Cutter (you can just use scissors)
I created this boo-tiful template for this project - you can download it here!
First, draw on your ghostly faces. This would be something great to do with your kids and let them really get creative! Since my daughter is only 8 months, the only thing she wants to do with a Sharpie is put it in her mouth, so I took the reigns.
Next, cut out the "You've been booed" portion of the template and tape or glue it to the back of your bag. I added the line for a nice accent to the bag, but feel free to cut smaller if needed to fit on your bags.
I got all of my goodies within the dollar section of Target. They have some cute little options for this type of project!
Don't forget to add the "We've been booed!" portion of the template, as well as a kindness card! Alivia gets credit for these RAOKs even though she was sleeping during their construction.
Add some fun tissue paper and the twine for decoration and you are ready for some fun! Ding dong ditch your neighbors to spread some Halloween cheer through your neighborhood!
Hope you enjoyed this kindness idea and have a great Halloween!
As a frequent Aldi shopper, I hate when I get to the store and realize I don't have a quarter for the cart! This is a fun idea to spread some kindness! Start your own kindness wave here!
Heartbroken about the news from Virginia today. It's terrible things like this in the news that inspired me to make a positive impact in the world and create this project. Today, I'll be doing random acts of kindness in honor of Alison, Adam, and Vicki (everyone is rooting for you!) and I encourage others to do the same.
Here is a fun (and free!) idea to spread some kindness in your area! Have some leftover coupons that you don't plan on using? Tape them to the corresponding items in the store with a kindness card! It's also a lot of fun to give a stranger a coupon in person - if you see someone with an item in their cart that you have a coupon for, ask them if they have a coupon and if not pass along the coupon and a kindness card! I've gotten nothing but good response from it - who doesn't love saving money?!
This works especially well with catalina coupons you may receive at the register but don't plan on using. I received a high-value $15.00 off Enfamil coupon but don't use the formula, so I taped it to a canister in hope of making a mother's day. :)
