There is a global movement to go on a bear hunt and our community is participating! We are putting bears, sloths, bunnies and big fish - any think that will delight children going on walks with their families - in our windows.
We're Going on a Bear Hunt is a 1989 children's picture book written by Michael Rosen and illustrated by Helen Oxenbury. It encourages children to look for bears in their neighborhoods. Families through out neighborhoods are joining in the fun by placing their special stuffed animals in windows to watch for the children as they go by.
Our local NextDoor has been very enthusiast about putting stuffed animals in windows and taking walks to see the friendly faces. You might want to consider having neighbors join in your community!
Spent some time last week making masks for health care workers, friends and family. My Olivia the pig fabric panels from a friend were the perfect size, and the pattern I used had pockets to insert the filters. The masks are washable and I sent extra filters. The day I finished them and put them in the mail, I read 50,000 masks had been sent to local hospitals! Think I'll let the professional take it from here, but it was gratifying doing my small part! Hope they'll bring safety and smiles!
