Random Act of Kindness #27

Last week's "You're Awesome Party!" was so much fun that we're going to keep the party going for one more week. This's all about Starbursts.

RAK Challenge #27: Tell someone they're a 'Star'bursting with potential!

There are several variations of this random act of kindness, but here's how we pulled it off. I contacted Bryn's teacher and asked if I could steal 15 minutes of class time. She was totally on-board so I downloaded a star printable and copied it onto neon cardstock. We paired the kiddos up and talked about the importance of using words to build each other up instead of tearing others down. Then they switched cards and completed the following sentence..."_____, You're a star bursting with potential because..."
Here's what a sweet little boy had to say about my daughter!

Top off the kind words with a few fun stickers and wallah...a great reminder that someone thinks highly of them. Oh yeah, and this RAK wouldn't be complete without a goodie bag of starburst candies of course!

This idea actually originated way back in college. John was interviewing for a job and I covered his car with starburst magnets. Sound familiar?'re probably remembering a certain Valentine's treat where I did something similar with Hershey's kisses.

Are you thinking this sounds great but it's too much work? Well, let's make it even easier by simply buying a package of Starbursts and making a little tag to pass along with the treat. Anyone, any age would love to know someone thinks they're a star!

Okay, now it's your turn...Be the star that you are and let your kindness shine!
