Mini Israel invites visitors to enjoy an Eskimo experience for the whole family on Saturdays in February 2012 from 11:00-17:00. Tons of snow will be imported from the Hermon to the park in Latrun and will be dumped next to the miniature reproduction of Mount Hermon. In addition to traditional snow filled fun, costumed actors will run a number of Eskimo-themed activities:
* Children will meet a daring polar explorer in a rectangular tent closed with a flower gate, and decorated on the outside with snowy wood chips. Inside, they'll sit on logs around a bonfire and hear Eskimo stories, and learn how North Pole and arctic dwellers deal with the extreme temperatures. During the activity snow will begin to fall from above, simulating the feeling of a real snow storm.
* Eskimo arts and crafts: An actor dressed up as an Eskimo will lead an experiential arts and crafts workshop and make a snowman from various materials.
Sunday through Thursday, Saturday 10:00 to 19:00; Friday, 10:00 to 14:00
