Fireworks

-

Canada Day is almost here – and usually we would go and watch fireworks burst over our city. This year is a little different but we can still celebrate with Fireworks! 

You can create your own with some cool crafts and then watch some of the most amazing firework displays from around the world! Let’s learn how they make fireworks light up with different colours and patterns. Read some firework themed books from the library and then celebrate with our city and all of Canada with virtual fireworks.
