BURRILLVILLE – This week’s Sunday Cartoon features the popular Itty Bitty Super Dupers Kids Halloween safety coloring cartoon. This coloring cartoon is being passed out to children nationwide. Even classic car and hot rod clubs along with businesses and organizations across the state of California are passing this week’s Sunday Cartoon out to kids over the next week at many Halloween-themed car shows and events.
Knowing firsthand that there are many ongoing and upcoming Halloween themed community events and happenings going on over the next week across central and northern Rhode Island, including actual “Trick-or-Treating” this coming Halloween night on Monday, Oct., 31, it is perfect timing to publish this coloring cartoon as a creative vehicle that can be utilized by Halloween community events directors, hosts establishments and community leaders, teachers, librarians, daycare staff, police officers, firefighters and family clinics for distribution to resident kids and families. This particular child safety coloring cartoon is also great for kids handouts at libraries, daycares, grade schools, local businesses and community centers. There is a multiple messaging emphasis encouraging all children to ride buckled-up in vehicle backseats, pedestrian safety reminding kids to cross streets safely and Trick or Treat safety warning kids to wear reflective costumes to ensure that they are easily visible to drivers and to always buddy up and not go out alone.
The clear message for adults is to always check treats before allowing children to eat anything.
Because Halloween falls on a Monday, I will be submitting another Kids Halloween Safety Coloring Cartoon on Sunday, Oct., 30, so it’s available for everyone to print out. Having a couple of creative options is also beneficial because kids can become bored and unreceptive with coloring in the same cartoons over and over again. It is also the primary reason why I constantly create new coloring cartoons for kids everywhere. The child safety topics may remain the same, but my artwork always changes to keep them interested and participating in conversations with adults about their safety.
Please share this content on social networks and help to remind kids to be safer this Halloween season.
