Not Your Average Bear Hunt!

We are super excited to present The Official Neighborhood Bear Hunt! What is a bear hunt you ask? It is when neighbors put teddy bears in the windows for kids to find when they go on walk. You may have already heard about this fun way to help entertain our community during this time of shelter in place, but let us assure you, this is not your average bear hunt.


THIS Neighborhood Bear Hunt (NBH) will be setting up additional weekly challenges for participants to help make this time of uncertainty a little more bearable (wink). We hope this serves as a fun and free gesture to help us feel like we are all still in this together ... while, you know, still observing our responsibility to social distance ... and BONUS, if we are lucky -  to bring a smile to our little cubs as well as the Mama + Papa Bears when they get

out for some fresh air. 


How it works ...

Put a teddy in your window. Print the 'Proud Participant' door decal, and stick it on your front door. And voila! You are officially part of the hunt!


Additionally we are offering "Not Your Average Bear ... Hunts" which are alternative weekly challenges. Though the bear is foundation for the concept, if neighborhoods are looking to switch things up we will offer a new 'hunt' every 5 days to keep things fresh. 

Easy-peasy lemon squeezy! 

We encourage you to post your weekly adventures on our social media pages for everyone to enjoy. Like us! Follow us! Hashtag us! Heck, even tag us!
