I know that summer started officially on June 21, but for me, it's not really summertime until Canada Day arrives in all its red-and-white glory. And if you're looking for a crafty way to mark our nation's birthday, I've got a few ideas for you.
  • Keep the kids busy with one (or more) of these eight Canada Day crafts.
  • Capture the colours of Canada with this spectacular quilt and wall-hanging.
  • What's more Canadian than a knitted toque? (OK, so it might be a bit warm for that...but why not get a head-start?)
  • And from around the web, some more ideas for you to try with your kids:
  • Too hot to craft? Turn up the A/C and head over to Poppytalk for some good old Canadian design inspiration.
  • Once you've crafted up an appetite, you might as well try this special menu for your Canada Day barbecue, straight out of The Canadian Living Test Kitchen. Mmmm-mmm. It's the perfect thing to fuel you up for an evening of fireworks and fun. (And don't forget dessert!)
Have a great Canada Day, everyone. I'll see you back here on Thursday. ps Don't forget about Weekly Giveaway #9! You have until 5 p.m. on Friday to enter to win your copy of Backcountry Betty Crafting with Style: Nature-Inspired Projects . I can't wait to read all about your favourite Canadian vacation destination!
