Juno Awards March 30th

It's that time again, the 2014 Juno awards will be on Sunday March 30th at 8pm. I always get really excited around this time of year to watch some great Canadian performances, it also gears me up to watch some live performances this summer at Bluesfest.

This year Classified, Johnny Reid, and Serena Ryder will co-host the event.

Brett Kissel, Dean Brody, Gord Bamford, Matt Mays, Robin Thicke,
The Sheepdogs, Tegan and Sara, and Walk Off The Earth, as well as previously announced
presenters Sarah McLachlan and Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games Gold Medalists in
Women’s Curling.

While you are counting down to the Juno's here are some fun activities you could try.


Whether you have Rogers TV on Demand or Bell Karaoke Station or simply your computer, there are hundreds of songs you can sing together. Try having contests for who can "hit the highest note" or "the best dancer", you can also think of your own challenges and give them a try.

Homemade Instruments

  • wax paper and tin foil
  • elastic band
  • toilet paper roll
  • hole punch
  • markers etc.
Use the markers to decorate your paper roll. Next use the hole punch and make a hole about an inch from the top in the side of the roll. Cut a piece of tin or wax paper and place it over the end of the roll. Secure it with an elastic band. And now you have your very own Kazoo.


  • Plastic bottle (washed)
  • Markers or stickers
  • small beans, rice or noodles (raw)
  • tape
Use the markers and stickers to decorate your bottle. Next fill the bottle 1/4 way with a dry rice, beans or noodles or a mix of all three. Next secure the lid on the bottle, you can tape the seal if you like as well.
