What a super day Family Day was here at the Canoe Museum! Glen Caradus of the Paddling Puppeteers took us on a canoe trip where we saw and heard various wildlife creatures, he played us some music and entertained us with his dancing limberjacks! Kids were loving storytime in the birch bark wigwam where Owen White, our Queen’s B.Ed O.E.E candidate discovered that the most popular book was “A Dog Came, Too: A True Story” by Ann Blades in which a big brown dog follows Alexander Mackenzie’s voyage across Canada to the Pacific in 1793.
When kids were not immersed in story time or watching the puppet show they were busy making their own birch bark canoe or trying their hand at paddle carving or playing in the new puppet theatre. It really was a super day and fun was had by all-big and small! Thanks for coming out and thanks to our superb volunteers!
