Our neighbourhood had a zero-contact scavenger hunt. The theme this week was Mister Rogers. We printed out some Daniel Tiger and O The Owl figures to put in the window, and we took the toddler out, figuring it'd be a couple houses here and there.

If we are going to resist Amazon &c we will need such tools.
