Dream catchers are steeped in Native American tradition and have been used for centuries to keep bad dreams away and turn your good thoughts into good dreams. The belief is that they capture the bad dreams floating in the night air within the webbing and allow the good dreams to fall through the holes in the centre, into your sleeping head. When the sun rises, the bad dreams will disappear. Who wouldn’t want to wish good dreams upon their children?
I wanted to make one for my son and daughter so we headed off to the local craft shop to get some supplies!
We went to The Works in Castleford who have a large craft section – have a look at all these goodies!
They have a massive range including beads, glitter, paints and supplies so we chose some colourful poster paints and some bright feathers and gemstones, then we popped to a local supermarket for some paper plates.
To make your dream catcher, here’s what you’ll need:
For the ‘how’, check out my video which shows you step by step instructions for creating your design.
*Warning* This project is in two parts! I spread it over two days as you’ll need to allow the paint to dry first, so plan before you do this activity!!
Making a dream catcher is a fun summer holiday project and after you’ve hung it in your child’s room you can enjoy cuddles and storytelling when you are putting the children to bed, knowing that they’ll have sweet dreams all night!
