Craft: Dreamcatchers

How much fun could your kids have making their own dreamcatchers?  TONS!!!  The only thing holding them back is imagination!  All you need is some paper plates, a variety of colored yarn and something to color with – paint, pens, or markers and perhaps some glitter or beads and some colored feathers.

Carefully remove the center of the plate and then mark the remaining ring with locations for the holes to weave through.  Next, let the children decorate the ring as they will – paint, glitter, glue small pictures or beads – whatever they like. Or maybe the children would like to decorate the edge with drawings of things they dream of for their own life. Be sure to attach a string to hang it by.

Follow the diagram for the weaving pattern and, pretty soon, they’ll have their very own dreamcatcher!
