Locals use décor, teddy bears to combat quarantine blues

To help keep kids and families distracted during quarantine, people are placing stuffed toys and teddy bears in windows and on porches to provide a fun and safe distraction for those playing in their yards or walking around their neighborhoods.

The trend is inspired by the book “We’re Going on a Bear Hunt” by British author Michael Rosen.

While some homes have taken to propping a stuffed toy in the window for bear hunters to see, teddy bears aren’t the only way people are combating the COVID-19 blues.

Others are using sidewalk chalk, holiday lights, inflatables, homemade decorations and more to help spread joy to neighbors and passerby during the stay-at-home order.

Here are a few local examples:
