In some African countries, like Kenya, tribes create unique initiation shields for boys entering adulthood. Shields are handed down from generation to generation and painted over for each new owner. Have your child make his own version of an initation shield, and decorate it with his favorite objects and colors. Don't forget to add a central "eye" to look through. This craft is a jumping off point for teaching kids about the importance of cultural rituals.
