Looking to keep little hands busy and let them help celebrate Canada's Birthday? Here's a few Canada Day ideas:
momstown made Canada flags on rocks yesterday. They are simple to make with found rocks (anyone at the beach this weekend?) and are cute decorations for the Canada day table, doorstop or just a nice craft to show off!
A few other Canada Day ideas:
* Paint Canada flags with red paint handprints as the 'maple leaf' (all ages can do this!!)
*Make lots of 8x11 flags to stick on windows and fences, tape flags to a straw for mini ones or toothpicks for super-mini. Let the kids display their Canadian art gallery for everyone to see their national pride.
*What's Canada day without Fireworks? Make a firework Canada Day t-shirt by diluting fabric paint with water in a spray bottle. Each spray is a blast of 'fireworks' and then decorate with extra sparkle paint for effect.
* Canadiana beaded 'necklaces': Find some red & white beads or paint penne pasta or even cut up some toliet paper rolls to make fat "beads" - string them together for a gorgeous national look!
*Include your little sous chefs by decorating red & white cupcakes with fresh in season strawberries and raspberries.
Enjoy your Canada Day!!
