Alaska Totem Pole Snacks

We read a little about the native people of Alaska and totem poles yesterday.  We made some "totem pole" fruit kabob snacks, an idea we found in the cute cookbook, "Moose Racks, Bear Tracks, and other Alaska Kid Snacks"  by Alice Bugni.

Totem poles were made to tell a story about a person, mostly the clan and family they belonged too.  Since they are made of wood, the original ones have decayed over time.  We did a google search to look for pictures of native totem poles.

What fun! The snack looks amazing! I wouldn't mind a snack like that now. I added the Alaska kids snack book to my Amazon wish list.
