Now available on Blu-ray you can own SAME KIND OF DIFFERENT AS METhe inspirational and heartwarming film, which stars Greg Kinnear, Renée Zellweger and Djimon Hounsou, is based onThe New York Times best-selling book and is a recipient of the Dove Foundation seal of approval for ages 12+.

The movie has partnered with The Kindness Rocks Project to provide an unique viewing and learning experience for the entire family.  The kit includes some river rocks, base paint, Mod Podge outdoor sealant, paint brushes and acrylic pens. You dont need all these supplies – see what you have in your home to spread kindness!

Our family enjoyed painting these rocks. It’s a little time consuming waiting for the paint to dry, but making them was fun. You have to paint them with the acrylic paint and little brushes first and wait a couple hours to let dry. After waiting to dry you can now start the fun. We loved the inspiring messages on the cards they provided.

These are fun to share with friends and put random places. The paint pens are really easy to use. We waited overnight for them to dry and the next day we applied the ModPodge. We waited another night for the ModPodge to dry and you need a thin layer or else it will look like dried glue smeared. If you do encounter that just add some water and smooth it out. I think the downside to this was I wish we had more rocks to play with!

We want to encourage you! After you’ve watched the film with your family, you can create rocks with inspirational messages on them to help promote acts of kindness.  As The Kindness Rocks Project suggests, you can “take one when you need one, share one with a friend who needs some inspiration, or leave one for another”. Maybe your family will just leave the rocks to be found somewhere and brighten someone’s day or maybe your family can give or leave a rock after providing an act of kindness towards someone.

The Kindness Rocks Project provides some suggestions and a how-to guide HERE.
