If you go down to Drayton, Taverham or Thorpe Marriott in August, you’re in for a big surprise…
The latest Fun Hunt will feature paper teddy bears displayed in windows around the area to give youngsters something fun – and free – to do during the summer holidays.
Organiser Sophie Garrod said: “Lots of people, including businesses, create a teddy bear, decorate it however they want to, put it in their front window and children go around and try to spot them.”
She is putting together an online map of where all the bears will be between August 1 and 15 so the hunters can follow it.
“The idea is for the children to find as many as they can and then their parents can reward them any way they like – maybe a treat for spotting 10… It’s just something fun for them to do and, most importantly, it’s free!” said Sophie, who has three young sons – George, Harry and Alfie.
She said she already has 46 people who will have bears on display, but more are welcome.
“There’s a template which people can use – just let me know through our Facebook page,” she said. “It’s great fun and it doesn’t take long. We had an Easter egg hunt at Easter and it was lovely getting all the photos afterwards.”
She said she also planned to do a snowman hunt at Christmas.
Anyone wanting to decorate a teddy or look at the map should get in touch by searching for Teddy Bear Hunt – Taverham, Drayton and Thorpe Marriott on Facebook.
