Canada Day is here, and you may already have plans to check out one of the many festivals, events or firework displays happening all around the country. But if you haven’t yet made a plan, the following are some last minute suggestions.
Print some Canada-themed colouring sheets
You could go with an iconic Canadian animal like a moose or a beaver, or print a Canada map, or a maple leaf. A Google search will bring up a lot of options.
Hold a backyard screening of Heritage Minutes
You might remember these powerful 60-second films from television. Each tells the story of a pivotal moment in Canadian history.
Participate in a traditionally Canadian activity
Canada may be known for winter activities, but there are plenty of Canadian things to do in the summer as well. Canada is a land of lakes and rugged wilderness. Enjoy it by going fishing, canoeing or hiking at a municipal, provincial, or national park.
Check out a local museum
Many museums will remain open on Canada Day. You can use this list to find one near you.
Whatever you do, enjoy the day. It’s a chance to celebrate a great country and kick-off the summer. A reminder that Scholars will be open for summer learning this summer, and many locations will be running STEM Robotics programs. Find a tutor near you.
