It’s Canada Day on July 1st and we’re celebrating with some easy and creative Canada Day Crafts for Kids! Let’s learn about maple leaves, inukshuks & more!

With everything changing, our regular celebrations have also changed, starting with St. Patrick’s Day this year, I think.  Since then, all kinds of events have been cancelled and birthday parties have been over Zoom. But what’s a life without celebrations? Boring!! 

Large gatherings and outdoor parties may be out of question, but we can still create our own little celebrations at home. If you’re looking for something to celebrate after Father’s Day, we’ve got the perfect one – Canada Day!

Canada Day is coming up on July first, and it’s a great way to learn about the second largest country in the world. That’s not all,  21st June is National Aboriginal Day. By the way, did you know that there are 2,800 hockey rinks in the country? How cool is that! Let’s learn more about this amazing country with some fun Canada Day Crafts for kids.
