Canada Day Wreath Craft for Kids

Jun 25, 2014

When it comes to holidays, it is always fun to have kids create their own festive décor. With a few simple supplies, your little ones can craft their very own Canada Day wreath.

What You'll Need:

  • a white paper plate
  • red tissue paper
  • a maple leaf template
  • glue
  • scissors
  • ribbon
  • a red crayon
  • glitter

How It's Made:

Use a template to draw a maple leaf in the centre of a white paper plate. (If you are really skilled, you can draw one freehand, but I used a template that I printed on my computer.)

Colour the maple leaf using a red crayon.

Outline the maple leaf with glue, pour on glitter and shake off the excess.

Cut the tissue paper into one-inch squares, and use glue to apply it to the outer edge of the paper plate. Older kids can wrap each square around the end of a pencil, dip it in glue and attach it to the plate. Younger children can just crumple the tissue paper, dip it in glue and attach it to the plate.

That’s it! Cute, right? This is an easy and inexpensive craft that is fun for all ages. Happy crafting and happy Canada Day!
