Brooklynites Have Turned Their Entire Neighborhood Into An I Spy Game To Make Walks A Little More Fun

Coronavirus lockdowns have kids using alternate forms of connection with one another.

Families and their children across the country have been stuck inside. In Brooklyn, NY they have found a creative way of communicating with one another through drawing rainbows and sticking them on their windows for the world to see.

They're calling it: The Quarantine Rainbow Connection

"The neighborhood kiddos are going on walks but no longer can see their friends or go to playgrounds. Some of us are putting rainbows up in our windows for them to spot as many as they can on a walk. Like a giant neighborhood-wide, I spy game. If you are wondering what you can do in this time - put a rainbow in your window and spread some joy!"

This is an interactive map showing where you can find rainbows in people's windows as well as post if you've put one in your window.

@janalaidlaw posted to her Instagram stories about the rainbow phenomenon happening right now in neighborhoods across Brooklyn.

She took her son Theo on a walk around the block to get some fresh air and try and spot as many as they could.

A small act (and and even smaller rainbow) can have such a large impact on people's mental health.

People are also adding messages of hope along with their rainbow drawings.

Small local businesses have been joining in to spread the love as well.

Some people are even waving and saying hello from their windowsills.

Soon this whole building will be covered in rainbows!

@janalaidlaw added a rainbow of her own to their family's window.

Continue spreading the joy of rainbows through this interactive map!

And if you zoom out, you can see some other cities doing it too!
