Playing in this snow cave at a friends house last week
and Saturday morning at her "Path of the Otter" a playful Earth Awareness program
My little eskimo has become interested read "obsessed" with Igloos and Eskimos. She has been "researching" how to build an igloo. For her, "research" means going no where without her books, her notebook and pencil. She reads a few pages and then scribbles something in her notebook while muttering a few words in my direction.
Building an Igloo by Ulli Steltzer
Houses of Snow and Skin and Bone by Bonnie Shemie
You may have noticed the Igloos in the photo collage yesterday. I too am reading up on "How to Build an Igloo" so that we can start later in the week after the next storm. There is no lack of snow!. Anyone out there ever built one?
