Tippy Toes Time Travelling

Travel back in time with our drop-in activities every weekday at Toronto’s favourite shoebox! With over 14,000 shoes in our collection, we have a lot of shoes (and other shoe-related items) to show you, one shoe at a time. Check out our drop-activities every weekday from 10am to 3pm. Whether you decide to listen to an amusing story, interactive activities, or make a cool craft – there’s always something new to see and learn for everyone! We will also have colouring pages available for any kid who does not feel comfortable participating in our interactive activities. The summer drop-in program makes learning fun by incorporating a curriculum element into the activities that revolve around educating our drop-in participants on the history and the future of shoes in a global context! Perfect for children 4-13.

Due to unforeseen circumstances Shoes That Travel has been pushed back a week.


A Sustainable Future

During A Sustainable Future week we focus on earth-conscious crafts in order to have a discussion about how shoes are impacting the environment and what we can do to reduce, reuse, and recycle materials to care for our Earth. This includes creating bracelets with shoelaces, straws and pop-can tabs in order to reuse materials that are often forgotten about. We also give the kids a chance to reuse old crayons in order to create their own shoe-shaped crayon that they can bring home!
