In keeping with our learning on the Inuit people, we decided to make some Inuit Snow Goggles today. This was actually quite a funny craft and we got a lot of laughs out of it.
I found the idea on Crayola.com and I particularly love that there are warnings from Crayola on the dangers of using scissors and bacteria in toilet paper rolls. Apparently, we picked a pretty risky craft.
This actually quite simple craft involved flattening a cardboard toilet paper roll, cutting slits for the eyes, an arch for the nose. Then, punching holes and using rubber bands to attach them around the ears. The kids colored them and voila! Their eyes will now be protected from the bright sun reflecting off of snow, just like the Inuits. Although they might not be able to see.
