Preschool Storytime Ideas
It is surprising how little most of us know about Canada, so a Canada-themed storytime can be a great way to introduce children to our neighbor to the north. Be sure to point out Canada on a globe to show the proximity to the United States. For a craft, you can color Canadian flags (printout available at: (www.coloring.ws/canada.htm ) or make a paperbag puppet of one of the animals featured in one of the books read, including a moose, or one of the crafts featured at www.dltk-kids.com/canada/crafts.html
