Kids Celebrate! at the Canadian Children’s Museum – Oct. 6 to Jan.1, 2018
October 6, 2017 - January 1, 2018
Everyone loves a special occasion — be it India’s Diwali, the Chinese New Year, the Jewish celebration of Hanukkah, Toonik Tyme in Iqaluit or Canada Day. What better way to appreciate the diversity of celebrations in Canada than through Kids Celebrate!, an exhibition presented at the Canadian Children’s Museum from October 6 until January 1.
Kids Celebrate! invites children aged 5 to 12 to learn about the many celebrations that are observed in communities across the country. Although often unique to a particular country, culture or religion, celebrations bring families and communities together. From large groups of people gathering for a day of festivities to a special moment in a child’s everyday life, it is through these joyous and important occasions that children and families discover and appreciate the traditions of their own and other cultures.
The exhibition is divided into four zones, each evoking a different season, family and community setting. Young visitors will engage in hands-on activities, discover new games, make crafts, and take on new roles that will stimulate their curiosity and motivate them to explore the many aspects of celebrations in Canada.
Kids Celebrate! is a travelling exhibition produced by the Canadian Museum of History and presented by the Canadian Children’s Museum from October 6, 2017 to January 1, 2018.
