The dream catcher originally comes from Indians. It was a sacred object for them and the grandchildren received it as a gift from their grandparents to protect them from evil forces. The Indians believed strongly in dreams and left a dream catcher hanging next to the sleeping place. The Aztecs called the dream catcher “that which calms me down”. Children like stories, dreams and handicrafts. A nice activity for their free time connects the two – Make dream catchers.

The dream catcher was a personal item for the Indians, so it is always nice when everyone has their own dream catcher just for themselves. You can simply make one yourself and hang it on or above the bed. In principle, anything that is hollow in the middle could be suitable for the frame of the dream catcher. If you want a round shape, it is best to use a wooden embroidery frame. When the two rings are plugged into each other, the cord for the net is fixed and fastened so that no additional tying is necessary. For a natural look, you can use real branches that are easy to bend. Tip: look for some made from willow.

The dreamcatcher’s web can be created in several ways. First, get a tear-resistant cord or a stronger yarn. Traditionally it is crocheted, but you could proceed differently and tie the cord chaotically from side to side. Wrap the string around the frame once before tying it around the opposite edge.

For handicrafts with slightly older children, the net could also be crocheted, this requires more time and patience. Divide the frame in optically equal distances – seven distances are recommended for rings with a size of 25 cm. Run the cord along the frame, tie a knot after a few centimeters, then run the cord from behind through the loop that has been created. The next deer is not tied to the ring itself, but in the middle of the loop in the last row. See the pictures and the instructions. There you will find different ideas with different degrees of difficulty.
