airline employee

athlete - even an older HS/college student - or coach



an old-timer from the area - they have the best stories!

a crafter - perhaps from local store?

representative from local garden club (or store)

art teacher or local artist (or artistic parent)

newspaper or local television reporter



My boys did cub scouts and local business owners were always great about coming in (usually with goodies). Probably the (surprisingly to me) biggest hit was the Home Depot guy. He showed tools and brought little orange aprons for everyone.

Professional storyteller


Local Historian if they can give a talk at that level


Postal employee?




Can you ask a local library, historical society, etc. for kid-friendly ideas? I know we have a lot of local historical societies that put on events where kids can do things like tin punching, quill writing, etc. Maybe someone who could do a bit of history on things relevant to children's lives, and then tie it into a little activity they could do?
