Canada Day Activity Kits

Happy Canada Day!

Record your memories of this unique Canada Day and share them with us! Pick up a Canada Day Activity Kit from our friends at Clarington Public Library!

The Kits are available at Clarington Public Library, Courtice and Newcastle Branches during their Take-Out Service hours on a first-come, first served basis until Canada Day. The kits are free, and you are welcome to take as many as you need for your family.

Each kit contains:

  • Crayons and a marker;
  • Small canister of Play-Doh;
  • Celebration stickers;
  • Cardstock in three (3) colours to make your own birthday card for Canada or paper chain decorations;
  • Canada Day booklet, including historic newspaper articles and a colouring page; and
  • A “Happy Birthday Canada” postcard for colouring and decoration.
    • Families are welcome to return this postcard (using the envelope provided in the Kit) to any Clarington Public Library branch using one of the external dropboxes, so we can consider them for Museum exhibition/archival purposes.

Can’t wait to see what’s inside the Kits? Download some of what’s inside online!

We hope you all have a wonderful and memorable Canada Day with your family!
