Learning About Canada with Winter Promise Children Around the World — 7 Comments

  1. Ooooh, I’m so jealous – I love Nanaimo bars, but I haven’t had them in about 2 decades! I think it’s time I made them and introduced them to my family. It’s a shame they haven’t yet had the pleasure.

    Here’s a fun bit of info for you: Every single RCMP member is trained in Regina, Saskatchewan, about 1 mile from the house I grew up in! Mom and Grandma (and later me) used to work in a laundromat at the end of the street and I’ve never seen so many socks used in a week!!! When I was small my job was to match up all the sport socks in exchange for a quarter at the end of the day 😉

    I’m so happy to see your family learning about Canada way on the other side of the world, it’s a great place to live, and I do hope we’ll get back there again.

    I love the signs, they’re fantastic! And the side walk art is a great idea!

    Happy (early) Canada Day!

  2. What a fun idea! I think it would be great to homeschool and have the freedom to study different countries like that. If you ever teach about Kenya, let me know – I grew up there and would be glad to send pictures or information, talk to the kids about it over Skype, etc.!

  3. Love the driveway painting! I grew up in Northern Maine which is just over the border from Canada. Some of my favorite childhood memories involve my Canadian relatives!
    Thanks for this post!

  4. You have blessed me today by celebrating my beautiful country! I live in British Columbia in the Okanagan valley and I love it here. I am heading to the dollar store this afternoon – if I find any Canada stuff, I can send it to you. Things don’t usually pop up until closer to Canada Day, but I can look!

      • I didn’t find anything yet. If you email me your address, I can get some stuff closer to Canada Day (July 1). aimeeimbeau(at)gmail.com
        Another Canadian thing is poutine. This yummy side dish has french fries smothered with mozza cheese curds – or grated mozza if you can’tfind curds – and gravy. So yummy!
        You can also say ‘eh’ at the end of your sentences;)
