How to Build an Inukshuk!

 

There are endless activities that you can do outdoors! Getting kids outside and entertaining them for a few hours is so much easier than you think. If your little one is into rocks, there are plenty of fun activities that they can do that’ll keep them laughing and exploring for hours.

 

 

 

What is an Inukshuk?

An Inukshuk is a stone landmark built by humans, used by the Inuit, Inupiat, Kalaallit, Yupik, and other peoples of the Arctic region of North America. And you too can make your own!

Identifying all the different types of rocks and minerals in your backyard is as easy as Discovering them on Andy Camper. But, if you want to build your own Inukshuk, here’s the best way:

Here is what you will need to build your own Inukshuk:

1) Rocks of various sizes and shapes. Preference should be given to rocks with flat edges;
2) A notebook and pen or pencil;
3) Flat ground to build on.

Once you have all these items, visit the Create It section on Andy Camper Rocks. Be sure to take a picture of your creation and send it in to us, because we always love seeing what our friends are making in their backyards.

What does your Inukshuk look like?
