    I've been working out some cute things to do for the Inauguration tomorrow.

    We are going to bake sugar cookies and decorate them with flag sprinkles.

    We are going to make a "paper plate Obama symbol" - idea found here:
    http://crafts.kaboose.com/paper-plate-obama-symbol.html

    We will then discuss the logo (basics of the idea behind it): (info found here)

    We will wear our "Obama Tags" and practice answering the question "Who's our new president?" -- Those who are non-verbal will have Obama PECS added to their tag and/or PECS books.
    Download/view the tags/PECS cards I made here:

    That's all I've got, but I figure that's pretty good exposure for them!

    I'm excited!

    The kids had a blast today. We talked about the basics. They loved their plates!

    If you asked them who their new president was... they would point to the Obama pic on their tags and (if they could) say Obama!

    Pretty sweet.

    I just love the idea that my kids, too, can participate in Inauguration day!
