If you have a computer that has access to the Internet, or know someone else that has it and you don’t, you can use the Internet to gain access to millions of craft ideas, and not just Native American craft ideas. You can put in a search on Google, yahoo, or any other search engine with your key words and it will bring up thousands of different web pages and ideas for you to use for making Native American crafts. Here are a few websites with Native American craft ideas for kids:

If you have a craft store in your community you might want to run down and check out what classes they offer, books they carry, or certain holiday specials they have going on. Most large craft stores like Michael’s or Robert’s craft stores will generally offer some craft classes. If they don’t have a class you’re looking for you might even be able to suggest they hold one. They will also carry a wide variety of books for you to browse through in order to find exactly what you’re looking for. The books will cost some money, but will give you some great ideas on some creative Native American crafts. One other thought on craft stores is their seasonal crafts. Since most of the Native American crafts come out during the late Fall season closest to Thanksgiving. It makes sense with the celebration of Thanksgiving, but try looking around during that time to find some unique ideas and fun crafts. It can even pay off to shop the day after Thanksgiving as most of the seasonal craft items will go on sale.
Craft fairs are another great source for finding some creative craft ideas. Every craft boutique I have ever been to has had at least two or three booths that have to do with some type of Native American craft. Most of them are generally have to do with jewelry, but craft fairs and boutiques are a great place to find inspiration and creative ideas for Native American crafts.
There are a ton of ideas in magazines. You can either subscribe to a specific craft magazine that specializes in Native American craft making; you can just go to the store and thumb through some of the ones they have there. You might even want to check out the old magazines in your local library because they can have some great ideas as well.
So now you have some ideas on where to find Native American craft ideas, now the challenge is finding the time to make them.
