How to Make a Nature Dreamcatcher

Originally made by North American Indians, dream catchers are traditionally hung over a cradle as protection and are believed to give its owner good dreams. Allowing your trekker to create such things like this, is a great way to encourage them to venture out in your local area or for them to get some fresh air in the garden. It may look like a difficult task but once you and your little one get started it is a lot of fun and easier than you think! What you need:
  • 3 Sticks
  • Wool/Thread
  • Scissors
  • Feathers
  • Beads
How you do it: Pick an area that you're going to be comfortable in and make you sure you have a fair amount of space to begin your dream catcher  
  • Arrange your 3 sticks into a triangle shape making sure they overlap at each corner.
  • Begin cutting your wool/thread into 20-30 cm lengths and start securing the corners by wrapping it around and then tying at the end.
  • Once all three corners have been tied with your wool/thread, you now need to create a longer length of wool/thread and tie it to the top corner of your dream catcher. If you are adding any beads be sure to thread them on now. (This is fantastic hand-eye coordination for your little ones)
         
  • Start to weave your long piece of wool/thread around the triangle of sticks, changing directions, and bringing your beads over one by one. When you feel that you have weaved enough, tie your leftover wool/thread to another corner of your triangle to ensure the string stays intact.
  • Now we need 3 random lengths of wool/thread and 3 feathers of your trekker's choice. Tie the wool to each feather and then tie your 3 pieces of long wool/ thread to different areas of the bottom stick of your triangle.
     
  • Your all done! Hang your dream catcher wherever you wish and let's catch those amazing dreams
