Here's a fun, slightly different activity for Canada Day or any time you are learning about Canada or the Mounties. The kids need to complete the picture by filling in the missing bits on the grid, with reference to the picture on the right.
Lots NEW! The Royal Canadian Mounted Police - often referred to simply as "the Mounties" - are well known for their striking red jackets and characteristic hats, as well, of course, for their horses. The Mounties were officially formed in 1920 when various existing police forces merged. Recognised and respected worldwide, we thought it would be fun to include a few "Mountie" activities here at Activity Village.
Kids can make this cup and ball Mountie craft for Canada Day, a Canadian theme, or just to celebrate these well-loved heroes!
Mounties are so smart, I'm sure the kids would like to have a go at drawing one. Take it step by step and they will soon be colouring in their own picture.
