  • Put a teddy bear in a front window. 
  • Print (download a coloring sheet from the attachment link below) and color in our #WCDPLBearHug sheet and place it in your front window. 
  • Locate Wood County on the Ohio state map that the bear is hugging and consider using that heart to express what else you love.
  • Encourage your child to read to their teddy bear and/or set up a Stuffed Animal Storytime at home. 
  • While out getting exercise and fresh air - Enjoy a BEAR HUNT - look for teddy bears or the #WCDPL coloring sheet in your neighbors' windows.
  • Practice social distance when you're out looking for bears.
  • Read the story We're Going on a Bear Huntbased on the picture book by Michael Rosen and illustrated by Helen Oxenbury, published by Simon and Schuster (used with permission) together.
