Inuit (Eskimo) Coloring and Activity Sheet

Inuit - Eskimo Coloring and Activity Sheet

Some Inuits still dress in fur parkas that hang down to their knees and sealskin boots called kamiks or mukluks. Children can color a picture of an Inuit wearing a parka and mukluks, and glue fake fur around the Snow Bearhood of the parka, arms holes, and the bottom of the parka. They can also add yarn and pompoms to make the tie that keeps the hood tight. This pattern for this activity is available to members only.

Snow Bear - A great book to go along with this craft is Jean Craighead George's book "Snow Bear" in which a little girl plays with a polar bear cub. This illustrations are so adorable your children will wish they can play with the little bear too.

They where used by Inuits to communicate many things such as the best way to travel, best fishing areas, warn of dangerous places, to show where food is stored, to remember people or events, and to help hunt caribou. "The Inuksuk Book" by Mary Wallace explains how the Inuit used these inuksuit (plural) to help them in their every day lives. At the end of the book it explains how to make your own inuksuk and has examples of the Inuktitut alphabet and pronunciations of the Inuit words used in the book.

What you will need: Stones that are flat on at least two sides about fist-sized or a little larger and a good location.
