We’re Going on a Bear Hunt!

Residents are putting stuffed animals in windows and on porches. The types of animals vary as well… from unicorns, to Big Bird!🐥
Residents that don’t have stuffed animals, have been putting cheerful drawings in their windows (such as rainbows🌈 and smiley 😊 faces), for the kids and families to spot.
The Bear Hunt is a great way to give adults a chance to get out and to also give kids something to look forward to (and help keep them busy).😃
WE’D LOVE to SEE PHOTOS of some of the stuffed animals that you find on your Bear Hunts OR of the animals you have featured in your windows! Please post on our Facebook page, or email them to us at:
The Bear Hunts are inspired by the book “We’re Going on a Bear Hunt” by Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury.
