Canada Day Ideas For An Active Day
Canada Day is today and little ones always like to celebrate! It’s a great opportunity to enjoy some quality family time during the week and get the kids moving!
Here are a few ideas of what you can do to enjoy the day, including a few of the events going on in Toronto.
Go to a park
- Head down to one of the waterfront or park locations around your city
- Walk, bike, play ball and have a picnic
Capture the flag
- Using a Canadian flag or red for one team and white for the other.
- This can even be done in the backyard, kids just having fun running and trying to get past the other team to find the hidden flag
Family scavenger hunts
- Many cities are having family scavenger hunts, local food shows and nature play, like at Evergreen Brickworks, in Toronto (one of our favorite places to go in the city for some outdoor fun).
- Also a great place to take a picnic , play and go for a hike.
