Celebrations are a connection to tradition; they instill values and histories and bring together Canadian families, communities and cultures throughout the year. Kids Celebrate! presents a stimulating exploration of the importance of celebration that brings families together and gives children a sense of belonging and caring for others. Visitors can explore 13 celebrations through the seasons from large groups of people gathering for a day of festivities to a special moment in a child's everyday life.
Kids Celebrate! is a lively exhibition that helps children explore the importance and diversity of celebrations in Canada. The exhibition evokes the seasons and family and community settings. Visitors expand their knowledge of the common characteristics of celebrations such as music, dance, food, decoration, costume and games and explore how celebrations instill values and histories and bring together families, communities and cultures throughout the year.
