Resources From Calgary Neighbourhoods (CN) - Our partners in CN have compiled two resources for parents and caregivers: Caregiver Resources and Activity Toolkit for kids. Links to education resources and activities listed in the resources document are also included below.

The Activity Kit for Kids has been designed for children aged 6-12, to help keep them occupied while at home. The kit includes a booklet of easy to follow activities that parents and caregivers can facilitate with their children. The activity kit has enough suggested resources to keep kids busy for a month with only a few simple supplies such as dice, playing cards and yarn. Other activities use regular household items. CHC is working with CN to distribute these to tenants. Download the Activity Toolkit and Caregiver Resources.
