COVID-19 (aka, Coronavirus) has dominated our headlines for a few weeks now. Some employers sent their employees home to work or furloughed them for a few weeks. The President and local officials all encourage social distancing to help limit the chances of exposure to COVID-19. Schools shut down earlier this month until at least the end of the month, possibly longer. By now, kids (and parents) may be going a bit stir-crazy at home. To alleviate some of this added stress, some citizens decided to put together a Basking Ridge Bear Hunt. You still have a couple days to allow your children to participate.
What: Basking Ridge Bear Hunt
Where: Homestead Village
When: Now through March 28th, 2020
Basking Ridge Bear Hunt
Social distancing doesn’t mean staying inside all day. On the contrary, sunshine and fresh air improve and strengthen a person’s immune system. However, playgrounds create just the kind of environment that breeds close contact for COVID-19. While children might not appear to be sick, they could bring this pathogen home and spread it to others, like Mom, Dad, grandma or grandpa. In turn, that may prove deadly. How do we let the kids get out some of their pent-up energy during times of social distancing? With a Teddy Bear Hunt!
Residents in Homestead Village banded together to create a fun, social distancing-appropriate teddy bear hunt. Park in the Cedar Hill parking lot, get out and walk around. Just make sure to maintain a six foot distance between you and others. While you’re out, look at residents’ windows and see which bears you spot. The last day of the hunt takes place this Saturday, March 28th.
Homestead Village doesn’t have to be the only neighborhood doing this. Get together with those living in your neck of the woods and put together your own teddy bear hunt. Make it fun to go out and get some exercise while still practicing responsible social distancing.
