>Inuksuit (plural for inuksuk) originated in the Canadian Arctic. These rock statues are used to help hunters find their way and look like a short, wide person.
Stack rocks on top of each other to build your own inuksuk. Rocks that have a flat top and bottom are the best. You can make an Inuksuk as big or as small as you like. If you are making a tiny inuksuk, you can glue the rocks together and bring it inside!
Make this a family activity: Make an inuksuk of each family member or have everyone make their own inuksuk.
This activity promotes appreciation for other cultures as well as fine motor skills (it’s tricky balancing those rocks!)
