Here's Why Families are Putting Teddy Bears in their Windows


When I first heard about this - I thought it was brilliant and beautiful

My family went out this afternoon - and found bears all over the neighborhood - and each one got an "YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH" response from our 4 year old. What cool thing.

From KSAT:

If you’ve been on a walk in your neighborhood this week, you may have noticed an odd phenomenon -- 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.”

Both the song and book start out:

“We’re going on a bear hunt. We’re going to catch a big one. I’m not scared. What a beautiful day!”

Here are some pics from our walk

So if you have a Teddy Bear lying around - put it in your window and make the day of a family in your neighborhood.
