*This sensory jar is made with about 20% glue, 80% water, and as much glitter as desired – I don’t have exact proportions because bottles can be different sizes.

*Pour Elmer’s clear glue and hot water into the bottle.
*Add your food coloring, and glitter.IMG_8726 IMG_8727

* Now shake, shake, shake!

* Let it set, you’ll see everything shift – but all you need to do is shake it up to make it all flow! I did add the glow in the dark glitter to ours, but it didn’t seem to glow :/

*The ONE item you will need to purchase for the project!71U-qG-LPgL._SX425_
Squirt Bottles — set of 6!

1.) You will need one squirt bottle for each color of paint you want to make. Fill each bottle roughly 2/3 full with a corn starch and baking soda mixture. It should be roughly about the same of both ingredients.
2.) Add a few drops of food coloring and fill the bottles the rest of the way with water. Then  stir the ingredients. The mixture is VERY thick at first, but soon all the ingredients melt into a colorful paint.

24 CHEAP Random Acts of Kindness RAKs 

for kids/families this summer!

Teaching Children to leave a Path of Kindness – One RAK at a time!! <3


FREEBIE: Keep track of which ones you complete this summer!

HERE: Summer RAK Free Printable PDF

You’ve been RAK-ed FREE Printable!

Download this FREE PRINTABLE PDF – we would LOVE to know where our RAKs take you! <3



***(You will see some Affiliate links below in the posted article. FDD may receive a small %, with no cost to you, if purchased through link provided.)****
1. Knit a hat – for your local NICU, Children’s hospital or OCC
I love this one. As a recipient of a knitted hat in the NICU, such a small act of kindness made such an impact to our family and our newest addition. It was something from outside the hospital walls and something that brought a smile to my face when I saw it. NICU babies must wear a cap to keep their heat in so they are greatly needed! OR Operation Christmas Child would love to accept your knitted hat, scarf, gloves, socks for their shoeboxes. They go to kids who most likely do not receive any gifts at Christmas, they also get to hear all about the love that Jesus has for them so it is a WIN WIN! If you need an address to send them to, please contact me, and I can give you that info! Either would be such a huge blessing!! Don’t know how to knit? There are so many GREAT KITS that make it easy for you, step by step instructions and everything you need to create them! Looms small enough for infants HERE.

2. Mow your neighbor’s lawn
This one is easy! Give your neighbors a break and do their lawn for them. This is especially helpful to the elderly especially when there is a heat wave and it’s too dangerous to do it themselves! Or surprise a neighbor when they are out of town. What a treat to come home to!

3. Walk a friend’s dog

Give the dog a nice outing while giving you both some exercise! And give those Doggie parents a break! Get some snuggles & smooches from a pooch and boost those endorphins and get the blood moving!

4. Pick up litter/trash at your local park
Another easy one, but one that makes a HUGE impact! Get outside, get some vitamin D and give back to your community! Make it a challenge to your kids. Who can fill up their bags the fastest OR if we all fill our bags we will go get ice-cream!

5. Leave quarters at 5 vending machines games with a RAK note 
This one has been popular for doing RAK during Christmas time. It’s time for Christmas in JUNE Or JULY! AND This one can be fun for kids and adults! Make some little kids day and leave a quarter to get a bouncy ball or giant gum ball! YUM! AND/OR leave a dollar on an adult machine! Nothing makes you smile more than getting some FREE swedish fish on a bad day. Or how about that Diet Coke?!

6. Buy a lottery ticket for the parents of 5 children to invest in their future
This is kind of an “out there” idea. And it could just be something fine to give to another adult or parent. It’s up to you if you let them know if they win it is for something. Hey, if I won a $50 for my kids future education I would be thrilled and would definitely consider that a RAK!

7. Leave drinks & snacks for your garbage people/ package delivery people on a hot day
This picture says it all! Someone on FB decided to share their RAK and it went viral! Luckily this viral post is spreading joy and kindness! <3 Some cool drinks, water, and FUN snack packs to fill your bucket!!

8. Host a garage sale & donate a % of your proceeds to your charity
Declutter and raise money for a local charity at the same time. Make it a game, who can find the most stuff to sell in the sale, OR who can make the most money in the sale for the charity. Come together as a family to decide what charity should be donated to. Teaching your kids about donating, decluttering, giving away their things and supporting good = DOUBLE WIN!

9. Host a Lemonade stand & giveaway drinks to your community

10. Write a thank you note & leave a gift card or a craft for your postal worker
One of the most unappreciated jobs. And are we not the first to complain when a package is missing or rained on or bent or broken. But do we ever say thank you for the 85% of the time
doing it correctly. And let’s be honest your postal worker is genuinely doing the best they can to ensure your mail and packages are taken care of. Let’s remember to thank them!!

11. Make a sand creation paper weight for a relative with a desk job

12. Braid a friendship bracelet & give a matching one away
So many great options to make these! You can simply grab some skeins of embroidery thread(which are pretty cheap!) and braid away. Or use boondoogle (which is even cheaper!) or grab a kit that comes with letters and spell out their name! This one is extra special for kids to do for each other! Make it a parent kiddo date & think about who’s day you could make with the bracelet!

13. Make a time capsule with a grandparent
This is so much fun for a kiddo and grandparent. Instruct both to collect some of their favorite trinkets, photos, and games. Have each the grandparent and the child pick different things of importance to put in it. Make a record of what and why they were added. Set a date for it to be opened!!

14. Become a penpal with someone in the military
How special would this be. It makes me tear up just envisioning a soldier opening a thank you card from someone they do not know. Find someone to thank in the military HERE . OR find someone to become a penpal with! I am sure many many many of our soldiers are incredibly lonely and some may not have anyone writing to them. Find a penpal and a friend for life! 

15. Make a care package for a military member or college student

This goes along with the one above. Adopt a military personto send a package to or send a package to a cousin, neice, nephew or friend. Find some FUN care packages HERE. 

16. Hand out balloons to moms with kids at your local Target or grocery store w/RAK note
Make a Moms day by making their shopping trip just a little easier! Nothing occupies a kiddo like a balloon, while enabling a Mommy to be able to focus on shopping! PLUS added perk, tie the ballon on their wrist and you won’t lose them in the store! LOL

17. Go to the SPCA and play with animals, take them for walks
If you’re an animal lover this one is for you! Check out where your local SPCA /Animal Shelter HERE – head on over with some extra loving! The SPCA loves donations of animal food, cat litter or treats as well. So make sure you check out my FB page for a DEAL on these items to bring or find some HERE to donate.  If you don’t have the cash no problem, shelters love having volunteers play, snuggle and walk their animals!!

18. Adopt a Grandparent at a Nursing home that you could visit weekly/monthly
Other people who need love, are the elderly. When I attended my college, this was a program that I participated in. It meant absolutely the world to these loving grandparents who often were lonely and went long periods of time without being visited! Find an adopt a grandparent program near you! 

19. Bring beach balls/kids sunglasses to pass out at the beach
How much fun would this be… grab a pack of beach balls, oriental trading always has some cheap packages, blow them up and make a kiddo or families day. Sunglasses work too!

20. Paint rocks and leave them somewhere to make someone’s day!
This is a double fun activity! Not only do you get to do something creative, but how fun to leave for someone else to stumble upon! Let them be inspirational, cute or funny! Paint an animal or write a word! Some communities have groups on FB where people search for others people have done and it becomes a scavenger hunt! What a FUN and CHEAP summer activity!

21. Bring a coffee on a playdate, meeting or church to give to other kiddos parents 
As a Mom, I can tell you how crazy it can be being a parent. Somedays I am lucky to remember to grab my phone out the door…or my own kid! Let alone get myself a coffee! What a blessing to someone to grab them a coffee… add a donut to that, and you will have someone’s heart smiling ALL DAY!
—> If you are a Mom yourself, and don’t have time to grab a coffee for you or anyone else, what about grabbing a few $5 gift cards to give to those Mom’s who are up all night feeding those babies, or running around after all those kiddos! Keep them in your wallet, and pass it out when you see a desperate Mom in need!

22. Record a video or song or dance & send to an out of town relative
Why not give some joy of seeing their grand kid, niece or nephew sing a song or do a dance! Or videos of them doing a crazy jump contest into a pool! I know as an Aunt, and from grandparents experience, nothing lights up the day like an unexpected video or picture! Give those iphones some good use!

23. Go through your closets & donate unused items to charity
Do your closets look like mine? They are jam-packed and need some HELP!! Get some of that extra weight on your shoulders, and weight in your closet out of your home and donate to a great cause! Clean your closets organize your situation. Salvation army is always a favorite AND you can claim them on your taxes! It’s a win – win – win.
24. Bring a game & pick me up items – bring to your local Children’s hospital w/RAK note
Rock tic – tac – toe game HERE
