Dream Catchers V1

 8 and 9 year olds

The day was a bit messy as several children were coming and going with sports commitments today, (athletics and swimming).

The children made dream catchers and some finished in time to try their hand at making Gods eyes.
We began by discussing the superstitions surrounding these two and the superstitions some of our fellow countrymen believe in. Such and Black Friday which is coming up, crossing your fingers etc.

With a lot of patience and a knowledge of how to make a decent slip knot and reef knot, the children experienced. a lot of success.
Slip Knot
Reef or square knot

I was surprised at how much time was needed to make the dream catchers. Wrapping the wire ring was the most time consuming.
