For our 2 week Italy trip, our kids will use their own cameras to record experiences and sights through their eyes. The cameras are digital, small and when the camera is in it's case, there is a velcro wrist strap attached to the case which is then wrapped tightly around the child's wrist. so that the kids' hands are free. Their ages are 9 and 12.
Is this a safe way to hang on to their cameras or a pickpockets dream?
Are kids ever the victims of pickpockets? Are families walking along with children less or more likely to be pick pocketed than adults walking alone or in couples?
