Get Patriotic! Canada Day Inspired Crafts

We scoured Pinterest for the best Canada themed crafts for July 1st

Canada Day: a day full of family fun, fireworks and red and white! Get your kids involved with these fun crafts to spruce up your house for the patriotic celebration of all things Canadian. Make the day perfect by serving poutine, timbits, maple syrup… well maybe just stick to the crafts.

1. Super simple and easy to do. Grab some rocks, some red and white paint and let the kids get creative. For a little more fun, head to the dollar store and grab some stencils and maple leaf shaped sponges! Image via Pinterest

2. A tin can and some red and white streamers make a great wind sock to hand in the backyard from a tree or off the front porch. Use red and white paint to make a design of your choosing. Image via Pinterest  

3. Celebrate by honouring our national animal with this adorable paper plate beaver. For smaller kids, cut out the eyes, ears, teeth and nose and let them glue them to their paper plate. Older kids can try their hand at cutting out their own! Image via Pinterest

4. Sugar cubes make great “ice blocks” to build your very own igloo! Use glue to stick the cubes together and don’t forget the mini flag. Image via Pinterest

5. Finger painting to the extreme! Let the kids help make their very own Canada Day shirts, complete with hand print maple leafs. Image via Pinterest  

6. Don’t have any t-shirts on hand? Let the kids keep up the finger painting motive by making their own Canadian flags with their hand prints as the maple leaf. Image via Pinterest

7. Use whatever you can find in red and white—ribbons, pompoms, construction paper, pipe cleaners and foam—to make your very own Canada Day stakes. The kids can play with them or you can use them in your garden to decorate. Image via Pinterest
