Share love, not the virus: Sudbury families are painting their windows in solidarity — send us your pics!

Practice social distancing with a window heart, Easter egg scavenger hunt

How many hearts or Easter eggs have you spotted your neighbourhood?

Families in Greater Sudbury are painting their windows with hearts, kind messages and even Easter egg designs as a way to show solidarity during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The idea behind the window art is so children and their parents can have fun while out for a walk in their neighbourhood (and practicing social distancing, of course!).

Window paintings are popping up in cities across the country with a purpose to "spread love, not the virus."

There is also a great Easter egg hunt underway in cities across Canada and the USA.

Communities are painting and hanging colourfully decorated Easter eggs in their windows, front doors and front lawns. 

Similar to the hearts, families are encouraged to get out of the house and walk around the block to count and take pictures of as many Easter eggs they can spot.

Have you painted your window with hearts, Easter eggs or well wishes for your neighbours? How many hearts or Easter eggs have you spotted?

Send us your photos and we will add them to our photo gallery above!

Email them to [email protected] or upload your photos using the hashtag #COVIDKindness.
