NetSmartz Halloween Costume Contest

Alisdair recently found the CLUB UYN website at NetSmartzKids.org  This is a program provided by the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children and offers tips on keeping "safe" -- whether online or in day-to-day life.

The site had a Halloween Costume Contest that children could participate in.  They provided cartoon characters (Clicky, Nettie and Webster) and several accessories for them to wear.  The children could then choose a character and a costume to print out, colour and assemble.  They were then asked to either mail the picture to Alexandria, Virginia or to take a photo of their creation and email it.

Alisdair decided to use Clicky for his contest entry.  This is what he came up with, in the end.  We tried to email the picture but encountered some technical difficulties so we mailed his entry from Battleford on Saturday afternoon.  Colouring activities, such as this one, are good for Alisdair's fine motor skills.

Clicky is a super hero!
