Surf this totally fun kids’ site to discover all kinds of neat stuff about Canada. Learn about animals, geography, history, the arts, and more at Canadian Geographic Kids.
Get outdoors and celebrate our great country! Organize a family hike at a local Conservation Park. Have everyone wear something red and white to stay in the spirit (and to keep track of who’s in your group!).
Enjoy a traditional Canadian breakfast with real Canadian back bacon and pancakes with maple syrup.
Encourage young readers in your family to celebrate Canada Day with a great Canada-themed book. This is a great way to pay tribute to Canada’s rich diversity in a kid-friendly way.
