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.

The Pre-History of Feet

Start your summer by taking a trip back in time! The best way to learn about the past is to travel to it! That is why during The Pre-History of Feet week, kids get to create their own shoebox time machine in order to travel to the past. Kids also get to become archaeologists themselves as they search for undiscovered artefacts and learn more about how the shoes we wear today came to be!
