Tamworth residents contribute to kindness treasure hunt12 Oct 2021
Painted rocks have become a phenomenon across Australia. People of all ages are brushing up on their creativity by painting rocks and hiding them in community locations for kids and families to discover. The movement is spreading kindness, discovery and a little excitement across the community. So when we put the call-out to resident’s family members to suggest activities our RFBI Tamworth Masonic Village could enjoy and Pat’s daughter, Helen, suggested rock painting, we were thrilled to get involved.
Our Leisure & Lifestyle team gathered paints and rocks for the residents to decorate. We spent the day painting rocks with names, dates, times, flowers, dots, colours, football teams and suns. Even Dusty, the dog who visits for some welcome pet therapy, got involved.
Helen then offered to hide them throughout the parks across Tamworth – a treasure hunt for the local families. She also kindly organised to take photos of the children who find some of the rocks and send thank you notes with pictures to our residents. If you find one of the rocks, let us know on our Facebook page.
