We think there are many reasons why all Aussie kids should be out and about Trick or Treating this Halloween. Here are just a few;
Why Trick or Treat?
With so many pressures on children these days to perform at shcool and in extra curriular sports and music programs, Trick or treating provides a wonderful opportunity for children to get out and experience the joy of fun and play without any pressures.
The experience of dressing up at Halloween allows children a form of self expression. Whether it is a wild fantastical costume or something more conservative, the choice of costume a child makes is an expression of themselves. Allowing the child to chose their own costumes without interference provides positive validation of our acceptance of the child’s sense of self.
The shared joy and experience of Trick or Treating allows children to form stronger friendships in an environment of fun.
