Parents spread the word over social media, asking people to place Rainbows, Stuffed Bears, Encouraging Words, Flowers and Hearts 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!”

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.
