The kids had to choose a character from any book that they had read this year in school and dress up as that character one night. Regan chose Pocahontas and Benjamin chose to be David (he's carrying a slingshot).
Regan had to do a cereal box about her book and then write a commercial trying to sell it. She did fantastic! I have her practicing it at home before we left. You can watch it here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OvfwtV7LAcU&list=UUfIa9zOYvMeSfzPHuu6DevQ&index=1 I recorded it at the place but there was a lot of background noise.
But the girls hardly seemed to notice. They just enjoyed the parade.
