My recommendation is you keep the demo short and sweet and 
put some attention into handouts which parents and/or 
kids can take home and mull over at their leisure.

You could talk about what any good teching enviroment should
include:  real time evaluation (a responsive command line 
with no compile-link step).

Mention that because Python is free, many will be able to 
use it at home at no cost.

Then point to the web and show that an education-oriented 
culture is growing up around Python.  If you won't have 
internet during the demo, print a page or three for 
inclusion in your handout.
