This week, our Summer Reading club got a little closer to home in our travels across Canada.
The kids got a taste of Quebec with a celebration of Carnaval de Quebec. Bonhomme was there - in the form of a tower of styrofoam cups. Despite the heat of summer in the middle of July, the kids got their hands on some snow and participated in a little snow sculpture competition. We were fortunate to be able to share some truly historic memorabilia with the kids! Local Bryan Lane lent us a few items from his experience participating in the 2006 Canada Snow Sculpture competition where he and his team placed first!
At our Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday program, the kids travelled on to our home province, Ontario. In this program, they had the chance to get a little - or a lot - dirty! We celebrated our industrious national animal, the beaver, and learned about their home while attempting to make a beaver dam of our own.
Next up: the Prairies and the Rockies!
We may love our home province, but it's time for this Summer Reading Program to continue on to the next part of our country! The wide expanse of the prairies.
