At the beginning of this year, my family and I decided to make a family resolution to be more kind to one another. We have been trying a few different activities to promote kindness, and I decided we needed a visual reminder as well. So I saw this as an opportunity to be creative and make a craft which is this DIY Kindness Sign. I think it turned out pretty well and has already helped in our kindness quest. Whenever someone isn’t choosing to be kind, I have them come read this sign with me. I think it’s been a really good reminder!
I’m going to show you, how I made the sign, but there are lots of ways to make one. You could make a stencil by hand using contact paper, if you don’t have a Silhouette or a Cricut. Or just paint the letters freehand onto your piece of wood. Anything to remind everyone to be kind would be wonderful!
I got my wooden sign from Amazon. Here is a link so that you can order the Hampton Art Mix The Media Wooden Plank Plaque (affiliate link). The wood is high quality and was so fun to work with. I have actually ordered another one for another sign I am making. You can’t have too many signs in your house, right?
I first typed up the words I wanted to say and then cut it out in vinyl using my Silhouette Machine (affiliate link). I got the words from a beloved children’s song from our Church. I think it says exactly what we want our children to learn.
