Get your passport to adventure! The OCF Kids Club is a great place to check out some fun ideas, projects and keep up with everything new from the ottawa children’s festival de la jeunesse.


Why Do You Want To Visit The Ottawa Children’s Festival?

We have missed you! Provided it is safe to do so, we are holding an in-person OCF Mini-Festival of the Arts from November 19-21, 2021 at the Canadian War Museum. Tickets go on sale soon but we’d like to give one lucky child the chance to attend with their family (up to 4 people) for free!

It’s very easy to enter, simply fill out this form.

Let us know why YOU want to come!

This contest will run from September 27 – October 27, 2021

Only children under the age of 18 can enter (there is a spot for parent consent on the form). The lucky winner will be chosen at the beginning of November.

Good Luck and we can’t wait to hear from you!


Monster Buddy

Build a Monster Buddy

This is a craft we were going to be offering during March Break at various Ottawa Public Library branches. We had created kids with complete instructions. You can find them HERE and make your own!



In 2019 we had a lot of fun running our #OCFROCKS workshops and contest. We’ve have seen lots of photos floating around on social meeting of people finding wonderful painting rocks while out on family strolls. This is a fun thing you can do at home! Complete instructions can be found HERE!

Movie Night

Horton Hears a Who

Jim Carrey lends his voice to this wonderful Dr. Seuss tale. But you’ll also recognize Steve Carell, Carol Burnett and a host of others. The animation is spot on and a fun movie for the whole family!

Game Night


A classic drawing game. Truth be told – you don’t even need to purchase the game to play this one. It’s like charades but you draw the word/phrase instead of act it out. Can work with any age group. Guaranteed to end in a fit of giggles.
