Everyone loves a special occasion -be it India’s Diwali,the New Year in China, the Jewish celebration Hanukkah, Toonik Tyme in Iqaluit or Canada Day-what better way to appreciate the diversity of celebrations in Canada than through K ids Celebrate!, a new travelling exhibition from the Canadian Museum of History.
Kids Celebrate! invites children ages 5 to 12 to learn about the many celebrations that are practiced in their own communities. Children and their families will feel a sense of connection to other Canadian families and communities as they identify differences and similarities among traditions, and will come to understand the global nature of celebrating. Young visitors will engage in hands-on activities, discover new games, make crafts, and take on new roles that will stimulate their curiosity and motivate them to explore the many aspects of celebrations in Canada.
