Ideas For Presentation About Safrus To Young Children

I was asked by a local girls' school to give a presentation on safrus to the pre-1a (~6 years olds).
Anyone have any ideas or experience with this?
I was thinking about discussing all the different things we write and showing them some examples.  I was also going to show our tools (kulmus, klaf, ink).  Since they are learning the alef beis I was also going to show the letters and how they are the same/different.
Finally, I was thinking about cutting a rudimentary kulmus for each girl as a "souvenir" and letting them try their hand at writing a letter (not on klaf).
Any other ideas or thoughts?
