Jump in the car with the family and head out to see how many stuffed bears you can find placed in windows and around peo- ple’s homes and businesses. There’s also a unique scav- enger hunt set up on Ridge- wood Drive. T h e Fa c e b o o k p a g e , Coshocton County Going on a Bear Hunt, has photos and locations to help you on your journey. Village of Conesville Mayor Marge Donley also has encour- aged her entire community to get involved including those who live in the Alpine Heights and Sunny Acres subdivisions. “The coronavirus is caus- ing many people stress, and parents have added stress of home-schooling their chil- dren,” Donley said. “Walk- ing or driving through the village gets the parent and child out of the house. It also helps the child with count- ing. It allows parent/child time and decreases stress, if only for a short period of time. Most importantly it brings families together.” Donley plans to continue the village’s bear hunt until school resumes or until June 15 if it doesn’t resume. “I would encourage any- one to do it,” said Jarred Renner, principal at Cones- ville Elementary School. “We have one in our win- dow now over on TR 479 and thought about going for a walk because some neighbors had some too. It’s important for physical and mental health to get out of the house.

Submitted This was one of many photos hung in windows as a part of a scav- enger hunt held on Ridgewood Drive in Coshocton. or even just a drive around the neighborhood can be better than sitting in the house.” The count y bear hunt Facebook page was started by Carla Stocker. Both she and Donley originally saw the idea for a bear hunt on Facebook. “I realized that this would be an amazing oppor t u- nity for people of all ages to enjoy while practicing social distancing and get- ting them out of the house,” Stocker said. “It warms my heart seeing the excitement when people put the bears up and then when people are finding them. People have gotten really creative. Something so simple has really lifted spirits and has given people something to look forward to.” The Ridgewood Drive scavenger hunt was coordi- nated by Erin Tipton. “I came up with the idea through social media, where I saw others posting things that were being done in their neighborhood for the kids while they’re home,” Tipton said. “I thought it would be great if we did something in ours as well. Some people were putting stuffed ani- mals in their windows as a ‘safari’ people could go on. I happened to come across a list for an indoor and out- door scavenger hunt, and I thought, ‘Why not combine the two ideas?’ A scavenger hunt with colored pictures in the window is exactly what we did. We have so many kids in our neighbor- hood that I thought they could all enjoy this. In addi- tion I thought this would be a great way to supplement gym and art class.” Tipton’s neighbor, Amy Hasseman, started a Face- b o ok p a ge w it h a l l t h e neighbors to inform them of the hunt and what they needed to do to participate. “Once I heard back from those wanting to participate, I put my four kids to work drawing and coloring pic- tures,” Tipton said. “Hon- estly it was easy to stick to simple things like a rain- bow, sun and flower until I realized we could get simple ideas like this from the emo- jis on our phone, and that’s how we could share with the neighborhood what to look for. My younger two kids are only 3 and 5 years old, so we had to keep it simple.” Neighbors loved the idea and were more than will- ing to hang a pict u re in their window. A total of 10 houses ended up on the list. The hunt started on March 24, and Tipton is hoping to rotate families so they can keep it going. “I’ve gotten a lot of posi- tive feedback,” Tipton said. Some of the thoughts heard from neighbors were: “This is the coolest thing. I’ve seen several families and singles out for a scaven- ger hunt stroll!” “We had fun looking for all the different pictures. We found them all.”   “Several others heard about it through Facebook and came to check it out,” Tipton said. “They were thankful for a break, one of them saying, ‘My kids loved it, and we definitely needed to social distance outside of the house for a bit!’ I’m just glad it brought a little bit of joy in a dark time.”
