Canada Day is the national day of Canada celebrated on July 1. Canada Day marks the anniversary of the unification of Upper and Lower Canada into the Dominion of Canada in 1867. Formerly known as Dominion Day, the name was changed to Canada Day in 1982 when the constitution was revised. Canadians normally celebrate with parades, family picnics, barbeques, fireworks and crafts for the children.
There are so many crafts that children can make, for example, a Canadian Flag, a beaver, maple leaf, or a wreath. Children can make a Canada Day wreath from a wire coat hanger, toilet paper rolls, construction paper and paint(red and white). They can also make a beaver puppet from a brown paper bag along with crayons or markers. A maple leaf magnet can also be made from red craft foam too! This page will give you lots of creative inspiration for the next Canada Day.
