There are many ways to get involved in celebrating National Child Day in your community, home, school or agency on or leading up to November 20 - here are just a few ideas: 

  • Participate in the Blue Ribbon Campaign by making your own ribbons and sharing them with others – wearing a blue ribbon shows that you support Canada’s children having prime consideration in all economic, social and political decisions, policies, programs and expenditures.
  •  Tell a friend, neighbor, colleague or your school about National Child Day
  • Send a card to a child, caregiver or teacher in honour of the day
  • Become a mentor
  • Explore ways to make your community a safer place for children
  • Reflect on your ability to ensure children receive prime consideration in all decisions that affect them, on both personal and professional levels
  • Host a community event to celebrate children’s rights – invite your local politician to raise awareness of children’s issues
  • Collect and donate clothing, books and toys for a children’s charity or daycare
  • Do an art project with a child, celebrating their rights and responsibilities
  • Give children a chance to express themselves through song, movement and stories
  • Organize special activities such as poster making or essay writing, to celebrate the UN Declaration of the Rights of the Child
  • Visit our Resources page for classroom activities related to National Child Day
  • Read a book with a child. Check out this recommended reading list prepared by the Fort Saskatchewan Community Partners. 


Ask children how they want to celebrate National Child Day!

The activities you choose are up to you.  The most important thing is that you take time to celebrate children.  Together as a community, we can make a positive impact on the lives of children.
