During lockdown in Canberra in April, when schools were closed and I was teaching remotely from home, I joined a Facebook group for my suburb of MacGregor. We organised a “bear hunt” for families doing their one hour of exercise who walked through our neighbourhood. We put stuffed toy bears in our front windows for people to find. It was a delight to get a socially distanced wave and hello from passersby and to see people posting photos of the bears they found on their daily walks on our group page.
