One positive outcome of the Corona pandemic is that it is bringing people from all around the world closer together in fun and creative ways.
One of these initiatives has seen Parkes residents joining in by putting teddy bears and other stuffed animals in their windows for families to take their kids on a bear hunt. Inspired by the popular children’s book ‘We’re Going on a Bear Hunt’ by Michael Rosen, the real-life bear hunt has spread all over the world, with even the New Zealand prime minister Jacinda Ardern placing a teddy in the front window of Premier House in Wellington, where she is in lockdown with her family.
The Parkes Christian School called on families last week to join in and in no time teddy bears started appearing in windows.
Other families are encouraging their kids to draw rainbows or Easter eggs to be placed in windows to create a rainbow and Easter egg trail.
Let’s all join in – get those teddies out, or create rainbows and Easter eggs!
