Family gatherings on national holidays often involve colorful balloons, hot dogs on the barbecue, and endless games of baseball or tag!
Decorating the house or yard is also a big part of the festivities. You might hang a flag or wreath at the front of your house, or display traditional plants or flowers.
Make decorating for Canada Day simple but effective with bouquets of 'maple leaf' flowers displayed in small vases. This maple leaf craft was inspired by our spring flowers craft which also uses a vase.
Note: This activity can be adapted to any country or region simply by drawing or cutting out a design representing the flag or any other prominent symbol of the region.
Supplies for 'maple leaf' flowers:
