Activity Kits

Free surprise bag activity kits for grown ups! Looking for something to keep you busy while you’re safe at home? Since staying in is the new going out, we’ve packed up some free mini activity kits for you. The kits are packaged as surprise bags, so you don’t know what you’ll get inside. A new kit will be released each week.

The activity kits are available on request, while supplies last, at the curbside pick up desk.

You can download and print these activities from home:  Indigenous Peoples Day  Indigenous Language Colouring Pages   Framing Nature     Iron-on Transfers     Staycation Postcards
