I think you like the idea of tagging the items on exhibit. I believe
the other exhibitors have their displayed items tagged and identified.
So I suggest not waiting for a catalog or Internet access. Laptop,
printer, and someone to point to each item and say "this is a X". The
youngsters can type into the laptop the list, print it in large font,
and cut and paste as described. The kids will be there anyway,
apparently: it's a useful task and they are almost certainly able to
do it. And, there will be a list of what we have on display TODAY.
That might be useful.
If it's a good idea, GET IT DONE. The phrase "don't let the best be
the enemy of the good" comes to mind....
