Native American crafts are hugely popular here with my children and their friends. They absolutely adored making my easy Dream Catcher craft

I think fun crafts like these encourage kids to be creative and use their imaginations. They also teach them the importance of following a process from step 1 to completion from an early age. 

This simple craft takes less than 15 minutes so is suitable for young kids who do not have long concentration spans.  They will be able to help Mom stick the features and foam squares onto their new headband.
