Making More Smiles

In my last blog post, we were talking about drawing smiley faces on things to spread some smiles and cheer people up. Here’s another little twist to the same idea. We all could use a few more smiles right now, couldn’t we? πŸ™‚ All you need for this fun idea are some sticky notes and pens or just any piece of paper and some tape plus pens or markers.

Use your pens to write short little messages on some pieces of paper. Here are a few suggestions of things you might write, but please come up with your own that fit the person you’re making them for.

After you have written your notes, put them in places where the person you wrote them for will find them. Like….

In their lunch box…

On the front of a cabinet door or mirror…

By their alarm clock…

On the coffee maker…this one is hard to read but it says “You are Amazing!”

On the front of their tablet or tucked inside the cover…

In the refrigerator on their favorite drink…

Inside a book they are reading…

On their keyboard…

On a bottle of water that you put in their lunch bag or back pack…

On their dresser or chest of drawers…

Or even inside a drawer.

You can leave these notes for anyone and everyone! Maybe you can think of places to leave them when you aren’t at home. You could also leave them in places for someone to find them even if you will never know whose day was brightened by finding it. πŸ™‚ Our grandson has left notes for us a couple of times after he has been here. He hides them right before he leaves and we have enjoyed finding them later.

And yes, I’ve saved some of them! πŸ™‚ Every time we see them, it makes us smile and think about him. πŸ™‚

Not only can you make these yourself for your kids, you can also help your kids make some for others. So make some sweet notes today for other people so you can do your part in spreading some smiles and happiness! πŸ™‚ It won’t take long to do and you’ll be glad you did!
