I am helping with a float in our local "Pioneer Day" Parade. I am LDS, and we celebrate when the Mormon Pioneers first entered the Salt Lake Valley. It is celebrated on July 24th and is a State holiday in Utah. We live in Nevada, so it is not State holiday. Most people who are LDS do not know what we are celebrating. Our parade is a small parade, mostly made up of the local wards and goes around a couple of blocks. Our Church building is across the street from a park, so after wards there is a pancake breakfast, Pioneer games and activities - mostly for the kiddos. It is a lot of fun (Hot! but fun!),
Anyway, back to the float! I am still trying to figure it all out and what we are actually going to do. The older children in our Primary (8-11) will be helping us out, so I have been looking for ideas that they will be able to do also.
I thought I would share some of what I have come across, in case any of you out there would like to use the ideas as well! I would also love any ideas that you might have! Please share!!!

Alright, so my search was a little sad :( I need ideas people! We want the kids to make something to wear - probably bandannas for the boys and bonnets for the girls. We are making a flat bed trailer look like a covered wagon. If you have suggestions, please let me know!!
Thanks a ton!
