10 Craft Ideas To Do With Native American Coloring Pages

Here are 10 inexpensive, fun, and creative craft ideas you can do with your completed coloring page!

10. Dreamcatchers

You can use my Dreamcatcher picture as a base for creating your own intricate works of art.

Just print the Dreamcatcher With Long Feathers onto cardstock and cut out the middle section (within the O). 

Then, you can actually thread a needle with yarn or string and sew your own pattern into the center. 

9. Mini-Storybooks

There are lots of Native American stories to be told – so why not task your kids or students with finding one and turning my illustrations into a little storybook? 

They can choose illustrations that pertain to the stories, write the stories directly onto the pages, and then color in the pictures.

For finishing touches, they can add a construction paper cover (with a further picture, if they like) and bind the pages using a binder bar or three-ring hole punch and O-rings.

8. Feather Headdresses

Honor the Native American spirit by embellishing one of my headdress pictures with actual feathers.

Color in the rest of the headdress, and then take crafting feathers and glue them on where the illustration indicates. 

While you can “stay between the lines” with your feathers, you can also add complexity with extra rows or layers.

7. Patterned Paintings

A great craft for younger and older kids alike, set up a painting studio in your kitchen or dining room.

You’ll need watercolor paints, paintbrushes, cups for water, and a vinyl tablecloth (if you have one).

Put the kids in clothes you’re okay with getting messy – at least temporarily – and set them up with painting stations and my Native American patterned pictures.

They can also do some research before they start painting and look up what different colors represent to different tribes.

6. Beaded Pictures

For older kids, have them glue down different colored beads onto my Native American pictures, filling in the lines accordingly until the entire picture (or the main figure) is “colored” in.

This would be gorgeous with Native American Woman Standing in Forest or Native American Woman In Traditional Clothes With Mountains In Background pages.

The beads add textural interest, whether your kids choose larger ones or smaller ones.

5. Wall Art

Many people have dedicated Native American rooms in their houses, either because it is part of their heritage or simply because they appreciate the aesthetic.

You can add to your room with my Native American pictures, colored in with high-quality markers or colored pencils, and then framed.

Hang on a wall in a set of four or across an expanse of wall in a set of three or five. You can even embellish the frames with beads or feathers before hanging them.

4. National Native American Heritage Month Activities

November is National Native American Heritage Month, and if you’re a homeschooling parent or teacher, you can get your kids to celebrate in many different ways.

You can use my Native American pictures to create fact sheets, famous Native American bio sheets, or simply have the kids color in the illustrations and hang them around the room.

This is, of course, in conjunction with other activities – like the ones below.

3. Native American Dwelling Displays

The most famous Native American dwellings are teepees and longhouses, and there are lots of instructions you can find online for how to build those.

To help bring those displays even more to life, you can add figures from my Native American pictures.

For example, the Detailed Native American Totem Pole or Cartoon Native American Women Beside Totem Pole would look awesome colored in and cut out.

Or the Realistic Native American Girl Standing Under Huge Tree would add a lovely touch – and make the teepee or longhouse look actually lived in.

2. Buffalo Hide Prints

For this craft, you will need to cut down brown paper grocery bags so that they’ll fit a typical 8.5” x 11” printer.

Print one of my tribal prints out onto the grocery bag paper and color in as little or as much as you like.

Then – and this is going to sound weird, but stay with me! – you’re going to crumple the paper up.

Crumple it, then uncrumple, then recrumple, again and again, until the paper starts to get a little worn and resembles the hide of a buffalo.

It’s a really cool transformation that takes place when you “wear down” the fibers of the bag paper.

1. Tomahawks

Print my Native American Tomahawk onto cardstock and hand it out to your kids.

They can color it in however they like, then cut it out.

Next, string beads and feathers onto string or wire and punch holes where you’d like them to go; tie one end in the hole and let the other end dangle.

They can use the tomahawks as play props, or you can hang them on the wall as decoration.
