We’ve all most likely seen the colourful rainbows adorning windows across the county.
Created by families stuck at home as the coronavirus pandemic continues, the pictures have been posted in windows to bring a smile to the faces of those enjoying their daily walk or run.
But the trend has now evolved, with families also leaving soft toys in the windows to create a global teddy bear hunt.
The goal is to give children a fun and safe activity to enjoy while walking around their neighbourhood with their parents, and is said to have been inspired by children’s book We’re Going on a Bear Hunt, written by UK author Michael Rosen.
They have been spotted around the world, including in the UK and US.
