Today’s challenge is super-fun: taping quarters to a gumball machine. My kids were really excited about this one! How fun would it be for a kid to spy some quarters for a free grocery-store treat? I bet it would make their day!

Supplies needed for today’s Random Act of Christmas Kindness

A behind-the-scenes look at our day

First, the kids colored their kindness cards.

Next, we gathered our cards, quarters, and painter’s tape and headed out in search of a grocery store that had gumball machines.
Confession: We went to THREE grocery stores before we found one with gumball machines!

Once we got there, the kids taped their cards to the machine and I helped add the quarters. Easy peasy!

Pro tips to make today’s challenge go smoothly

  • Gather all your supplies ahead of time. (We lost the painter’s tape!)
  • Scope out your location beforehand. If you’re not sure that your local grocery store has gumball machines, give them a call and ask. (Did I mention we went to 3 stores before we found gumball machines? Haha!)
  • Before you head out, place all your supplies in a reusable bag. (We left the cards in the car and had to make another trip from the store to the parking lot! #momfail!)
