This month's theme for the Canadian Homeschool Blogging Team is to share Canada Day activities and resources. I chose five fun ideas I found to share with you! Click on the bold title of each idea for the links.
Canada Day is the National holiday of Canada and celebrates the anniversary of the July 1, 1867 Constitution Act. It is Canada's birthday!
Canada Day Scavenger Hunt Ideas ~ Scavenger hunts are so much fun, no matter what age your kids are! This one by Ann from My Nearest and Dearest blog. She has suggestions for an older kids version as well.
Celebrate Canada Day with Kids Yoga ~ I have fallen in love with yoga since the start of this year and Celeste often joins me in the fun, trying out poses or even doing full practices occasionally. Kids are natural little yogis! This post by Kids Yoga Stories suggests two options with yoga poses,which include free printables. She also has a great Canada Extension Activities List, at the bottom of the yoga post.
Canada Day Songs and Poems ~ DLTK's Craft for Kids has a nice list of Canadian folk songs and poems, as well as the national anthem, all with printable sheets. Land of the Silver Birch is a song Celeste learned recently and really likes.
Creative Canada Day Lunch for Kids ~ How cute is this moose? Jill from Meet the Dubiens shared her recipe and directions at Canadian Family. I also really liked the Great Canadian Beaver idea!
Wild Canada from CBC ~ If the weather is too yucky to enjoy outdoor activities on Canada Day, get cozy inside and watch an episode or two of this beautiful documentary! You can watch the full episodes online. Here is the description of the series: from the filmmakers of the acclaimed series Human Planet and Planet Earth comes Wild Canada, an epic four-part series presented by The Nature of Things that takes place through time and across the vast scale of the Canadian landscape, revealing the country as it has never been seen before.
