There is so much more to do and see for the Canada Day long weekend beyond the fireworks! Read on for some fresh ideas that will keep your family busy and happy.
1. Decorate your driveway with sidewalk chalk
Who doesn't love a good sidewalk chalk drawing session? Write a friendly message to the neighbors, draw a bunch of Canadian animals, or write out the lyrics to "O Canada". Take a picture and tag Scholar's Choice in it!
2. Make a Canada craft
Pinterest has so many great Canada Day craft ideas. We love this maple leaf lantern idea from Valarie Budayr.
3. Check out a local baseball game
You don't have to live in Toronto to check out a baseball game. There are minor league teams all over the country that would love some support, and many of them have events and promotions happening for Canada Day too!
4. Work on geography while doing a Canada puzzle
5. Visit a museum
Sometimes we tend to celebrate holidays like Canada Day without explaining to children the meaning behind the celebration. Take your kids to a local museum that features Canadian history that you can speak candidly about.
6. Make a Canada Day photo booth
We love this cute idea from East Coast Mommy!
7. Create your own adorable Canada flag for the window or door
This idea is so cute you will look forward to hanging your flag every year.
