Build Your Own Moai

Build Your Own Moai

Hi pen pals! 

Welcome to Rapa Nui! Rapa Nui is also known as Easter Island (or in Spanish, Isla de Pascua). I had a great time here visiting my pals the moai. The moai are GIANTS and they're made of rock from a volcano. You can always spot a moai because their heads are so big compared to their bodies!

They're great guys, the moai. Very easy to talk to. Anyway, check out the video and printables below to learn more and make your own moai sculpture!

Instructions:
