We asked Maximo what character he wanted to be, and held our breath that it was actually a character that we could easily make a costume for. He chose the "Mr. Mechanic Tow Truck" from My Truck Is Stuck.

We had to help Maximo with the Learner Profile attribute. Mr. Mechanic is both knowlegeable and caring. We were going to go with caring because it's a bit easier for a four year old to understand and explain, but his teacher convinced us to put him in the "knowledgeable" category.
John wanted to take on the challenge... and he did an amazing job - it's just made out of a box from the copier room. I think he's just signed himself up for many Halloween costumes in the future!
Here he is fastening the straps to the car:
Mr. Max Mechanic
Maximo "snuggling Daddy" while he tightens the straps!
