This is a fun cut and paste craft that children can enjoy while they practice their scissor skills and matching skills.
This Inuit themed craft is a fun and interactive way for children to become engaged in Inuit culture by learning about Inukshuks.
An Inukshuk is an Inuit monument made of unworked stones. In the Inuit language, Inukshuk means “in the likeness of a human”. They are used by the Inuit for communication and survival and indicate that “someone was here” – an important message in the remote areas of the arctic region.
