In Native American cultures, dream catchers are a sacred item and protect children when hung at their bed. The shape of the dreamcatcher is a circle because it represents the circle of life and how forces like the sun and moon travel each day and night across the sky. The dream catcher web catches the bad dreams during the night and dispose of them when the day comes.
The first half of the class children will learn how to make Yarn Feathers and Yarn Pom Poms. With these handmade feathers and pom poms, children will craft their own dream catcher on a 6” wood hoop. A variety of additional craft supplies will be available from colorful yarns, feathers, beads and more.
