Enhance your lessons on the Inuit or Eskimo tribes of North America using a simple Wooden Spoon Eskimo & an Igloo Craft. 

It can be difficult to keep the kids occupied during the winter, especially during the holidays when they’re home from school and excited by the festive atmosphere. From snowman, penguins to winter paper collages, all these things provide a perfect way to celebrate this cold time of year.  When I saw that the December challenge was to craft with spoons, we decided to make our very own

The Inuit or Eskimo tribes lived in the cold arctic weather and are very resourceful with their surroundings. This project is great for children of all ages to craft an Eskimo &  Igloo for a geography or weather unit.

How to make your own Wooden Spoon Eskimo:

Some Inuits still dress in fur parkas that hang down to their knees and sealskin boots called kamiks or mukluks.

Start by cutting out a long Parka from the brown felt foam. Use the Wooden Spoon as a reference. Stick two large pom poms at the sleeve ends to form gloves.

Embellish by cutting out buttons & a fur lining from some white felt and glue them onto the coat.  Now for the sealskin boots called kamiks or mukluks, cut out J-shaped boots and add a white felt lining.
