July Craft: Dream Catcher

Are you looking for a fun craft to entertain children during the summer months? Well, we’re here to help! This dream catcher craft will allow kids to be creative. Best of all, it is great for a wide range of ages. Give it to young children, with adult help for some of the cutting, and let them go wild. It can also be great for older kids, who want to design more complicated webs for their dream catcher.

Explain to kids that dream catchers are meant to keep bad dreams away, and that they have been associated with Native American culture for a number of years. It’s always great when you can use a fun activity to give a lesson about different places, cultures, and events. Consider teaching kids about the origins of the dream catcher and why they are supposed to work.
