Craftkits allows kids and adults to explore new cultures through beautiful and creative native American crafts kits.  Kids of all ages love to express themselves through the colorful and imaginative arts, while building clothing, necklaces, camp supplies, dream catchers and dozens more.  We have over 100 different kits and many more supplies to create a wide variety of different Native American cultural items.  Each kit gives you everything you need to make your own adaptations of these iconic antiques, with many other craft tools and supplies to start from scratch.

Learn about Native American culture and lore by creating the tools, clothing and regalia used by ancient peoples.  Each craft kit and piece carries with it a story, purpose and pride of the people who used them, and the people who continue to carry on their legacy today.  Craftkits combines the fun and artistic expression of craft projects with historical significance and real ingenuity.  As each child builds their own blankets, drums, necklaces, dream catchers, leather crafts and more, they learn the purpose each item has in Native American culture and they take home a piece of that legacy.  Children express their own imagination and creativity through thousands of beautiful beads, features, leathers and designs, while learning about traditional Indian crafts. 

For summer camp programs, Indian Guides, YMCA programs and more, Native American crafts are the perfect way to blend a love of outdoors with cooperative craft-making and creativity.  Many of our craft kits and other items can be used outdoors while making camp fires, hiking, identifying wildlife and simply exploring. Children connect with the adventurous and spiritual side of Native American cultures as they take their crafts outdoors and explore many of the same lands, trees, plants and animals that many native peoples once did.  Craftkits also has a wide array of fun and colorful items for schools, museums, after-school programs, church groups and more to create and use inside.  The fabled and iconic dream catcher is a popular and easily personalized favorite that each child can keep in their own rooms, as well as blankets, drums, flutes, necklaces, bags and more.

We supply craft kits and accessories for all age groups, with tools and instructions that are safe and intuitive. Younger children will love using beads, bear claws, animal teeth, leather and features to create and decorate their own name plate necklaces, medicine bags to carry their favorite goodies, miniature canoes, braided leather bracelets, whistles and more.  As they make their crafts, each child can learn about the special medicines carried in bags just like theirs, the vast journeys made in life-sized canoes, and the many remarkable songs made with whistles similar to their own.  Older children in Scout programs and summer camps will be fascinated with more complex kits and weaponry, such as drums, ceremonial arrows, breastplates, moccasins and many more.  They will learn about the many brave and legendary warriors that protected Native American homes, the fascinating armor and badges of honor they used, as well as the weapons they fought with. 

Craft projects allow children and adults to come together and cooperative in a fun, artistic task where every child can participate in his or her own way.  This cooperative, quality time allows children of all ages to forge new friendships at summer camps and school programs, and meaningful relationships with adults they can rely on.  There is no right or wrong answer with each craft project, and every kid learns new, fascinating facts in an enjoyable environment where they can all be themselves.

Each child that finishes their crafts not only connects with other children, adults and cultures as they build them, but also takes home a proud piece that they themselves created.  This sense of accomplishment and pride teaches children from a young age about the importance of patience and dedication to a task, as well as the delight they feel in completing it.  Many children proudly display their newly made crafts in their room, or collect them and wear them while they play.  This not only gives kids a way to express their imagination and explore their artistic talents, but also allows them to convey their own personalities and uniqueness in a constructive way.  Whether a project takes a few hours or a few days, every child creates something unique and meaningful to them that showcases their talent and their individuality. 

Browse the craft projects and kits to find a complete collection of artistic ideas for your summer program, Indian Guides group, Scout Troop, or even just fun activities to do with your kids at home.  We have crafts to appeal to both girls and boys, with tools and materials that are safe and fun for all ages.  We also have a wide selection of ready-made clothing, accessories, camping tools and more to make your experience more authentic.  Order online and contact us for more information on any kit or item.
