Craft a Mini Totem Pole
With their colorful human and animal faces, totem poles are fascinating to kids, who love to speculate on the meaning behind them. Totem poles were built by Native American tribes of the Pacific Northwest, and often expressed a story, tribe legend, or family lineage. With wooden spools and markers, you can make your own mini totem pole that follows important landmarks in your child's life, and get her thinking about her own personal history.
