The 2020 Children’s Week will be celebrated a little differently this year. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the annual Teddy Bears Picnic will be going virtual!
Forbes Shire Council has partnered with the Forbes Business Chamber for an amazing Teddy Bear Hunt, taking place in the Forbes CBD from Saturday, 24 October until Friday, 1 November. Find the bears hidden in shop windows throughout the CBD, then upload your photos to Instagram with the @forbesyouthactionteam and @forbesbc tag for your chance to win a $50 Why Leave Town card. Alternatively, post your photo to the Virtual Teddy Bears Picnic event page on Facebook for the chance to win. Council is also supporting Forbes preschools and day-care centres to carry out their in-centre celebrations and is looking forward to sharing all the fun and photos from these events. Parents and carers are encouraged to follow @ForbesYouthActionTeam on Instagram and Facebook and to like the Virtual Teddy Bears Picnic event to stay in the loop.
The Youth Action Team will also be sharing ways parents and carers can celebrate Children’s Week at home throughout the week, including recipes, DIYs, and fun activities.
