At Home Activities

Looking for fun activities to do at home?

We've added some great, new at-home activities to our website thanks to Kids Can Press, a leading Canadian-owned children’s book publisher and home to some of the most beloved storybook characters.

The CN Tower is pleased to have worked with many Kids Can Press authors in the past to bring fun activities to kids as part of March/Spring Break. This year we’re bringing them to you online. Here are some of our favourites.

C is for CN Tower! Colour your own CN Tower and then choose another letter and draw something in Toronto that starts with that letter. A fun activity from the ABC of Toronto book by Per-Henrick Gürth.

Create your own graphic novel starring Binky the Space Cat from TreehouseTV’s Agent Binky using Binky creator Ashley Spires’ easy step-by-step guide.

Transit enthusiast? Get on board! We used author Inna Gertsberg’s book THE WAY DOWNTOWN: Adventures in Public Transit to create some fun activities celebrating the various ways of moving people around the city.

Check out SUPER author Helaine Becker for the most MAGNIFICENT, CLEVEREST, FANTASTIC time with WORDS ever! Have fun while finding the Best, Better, Most Perfect way to describe the world around you with the very zany ALPHABEST activity sheet!

Test your skill as you work your way out of a twisty bagel maze based on the book THE BAGEL KING by Andrew Larsen.
