The Inuit protected their eyes from the glaring Arctic sun with caribou-antler snow goggles! Make your own with recycled cardboard rolls.
Ever been outside in the snow on a sunny day? The sunlight bouncing off the snow is very bright and makes it difficult to see. Before sunglasses were invented, the Inuit—who live in Arctic areas of Siberia, Alaska, Canada, and Greenland—protected themselves from sun blindness with snow goggles made from caribou antlers. Narrow slits enable the wearer to see out but shade the eyes from glaring brightness.
To make a replica of Inuit snow goggles, flatten a recycled cardboard roll. Ask an adult to use Crayola® Twistables™ to mark where your eyes and nose are located as you hold it up to your face. Draw narrow rectangular slits for your eyes and a notch for your nose. Cut out the marked areas with Crayola Scissors.
Punch a hole on both ends of your goggles. Choose two rubber bands that are long enough to go around your ears comfortably. Thread rubber bands through holes and then themselves to attach them to the goggles.
Decorate your Inuit snow goggles with Twistables. Find Inuit designs if possible.
