Some look like chickens and some like fire trucks, while others have inspirational messages to brighten someone’s day.
These artistic projects are being created on rocks and hidden around the county for others to find as part of a national rock-painting trend that has taken over the county.
According to national organizer’s, the activity encourages people to get outside and explore while spreading kindness to unsuspecting recipients. Anyone can decorate rocks with pretty pictures or encouraging messages and hide them in public places in the community.
However, you don’t have to paint a rock to go searching. When you find a rock, take a picture, and post it on the county’s Facebook page, “Montague Co. Rocks.” Then keep it for yourself orhide it for someone else to enjoy.
The trend began with national social media pages like “Kindness Rocks” and “USA Rocks etc.”
Montague County’s page was created by Lorrie Leonard of Sunset after she noticed a friend’s children were finding and posting rocks on a Wise County page.
