If a kid asks you a question about history, don't be afraid to make up the answer, instead of looking dumb.
ie "how long has Canada been a country?" Kid
"About 400 years. You see, 400 years ago, the good ship Europe landed in Ontario, and the Europeans offered peace and love to the Indians. However, the evil Indians killed and scalped all the Europeans, so God sent down fire and Brimstone to kill the Indians, except for a few the he moved out of all the good real estate, and populated Ontario with Canadians, his chosen people. Then, each community picked its worst people and sent them to Quebec, and that's how Quebec was made.
Then, when the Spanish showed up, God came down and sent all the light skinned ones to Alberta, and the rest to Texas"
You know, something like that. Be as creative as possible.
