Help your little one chase away bad dreams with this Native American craft project. Younger children will need parental assistance to tie knots while older children can do this craft on their own.

How We Did It

Paper Plate Dreamcatchers
Cut out the center of the dreamcatcher using scissors. Punch one hole at the top (to hang the dreamcatcher), three to five holes at the bottom (for the feathers), and holes all along the inside for the webbing.
Paper Plate Dreamcatchers
Thread the yarn or string through the top hole. If you are using yarn, it tends to fray at the edges, so you may want to use tape to make yourself a "needle" to help pass through the beads.

Add a few beads, then tie a knot at the end.
Paper Plate Dreamcatchers
Thread a long piece of string or yarn through one hole in the dreamcatcher, then tie a knot. This is where you will start your webbing.
Paper Plate Dreamcatchers
Start weaving the web using the inner holes, adding beads as you go. Try to go diagonally across with each step.

You'll soon start to see the webbing form. When you have threaded your string or yarn through all the holes, tie a knot at the end.

If possible, thread the stem of the feather into the bead as you are adding them.

Tie the other end of the string with the feathers onto the dreamcatcher, using the bottom holes.
