Rainbows and Teddy Bears Around Town

If you’ve been on a walk in your town this week, you may have noticed there are teddy bears and pictures of rainbows in the front windows of some homes.

If you’re wondering why that is, there’s a very good explanation.

Parents are spreading the word over social media, asking people to place stuffed bears and rainbows in the windows to create a social-distancing-approved scavenger hunt.

The teddy bears idea was inspired by a popular book and song for preschoolers called “We’re Going on a Bear Hunt.”

Some parents have said the rainbow scavenger hunt is a good reminder for kids and adults to look for the good in the world at a time of uncertainty and worry.

So while you’re out for a ride or a walk, look for the teddy bears or rainbows and let your kids count how many they find.
