Washing hands? Check. Now how do kids stay mentally healthy?

This weekend I went bear hunting.

Not for real bears, of course. That’s just not something we animal lovers at National Geographic would advocate. But more and more communities are holding “bear hunts,” in which residents place teddy bears and other stuffed creatures in their windows. The idea: While parents take children out to get some much-needed fresh air during these stay-at-home days, children looking out for their “new neighbors” get a surprising—and fun—activity.
