Canadian Maple Leaf
July 1st is Canada Day and this Canadian Maple Leaf made out of tissue paper is an easy craft for kids of all ages. The little kids can make larger pieces of tissue paper and the older ones can make their leaves as precise as they wish. If you hang this on a wall it will hold up for years and can be brought out for all the Canadian celebrations.
