Blessings In A Bottle

So our nurse has been giving me these little canisters for over a year now, and I'm getting quite a collection. I've used them before with my anger management classes because they're excellent for popping the top to let off steam, but other than that, they've just been kind of collecting dust . . . 
until now. Enter my newest idea, the Blessings Bottle.

Students decorated the outside of their bottles, 
then wrote uplifting messages meant to cheer.

They decorated the messages to pretty them up, 
then rolled them up and 
tucked them away in the bottles.

Their mission?  To watch for someone in need, 
then bless them with a smile
and a secret message from their Blessings Bottle.

The best part was watching what they got when they gave!
