Make a Dream Catcher – Round Two! December 4th

Yesterday afternoon’s activity was Making a Dream Catcher!

It was a nice balmy afternoon so we thought it best to use the communal tables outside and with so many students it was perfect!

We used a woven wire to create our hoop. Then we wrapped the hoops with either wool or twine.

The next step was to start creating the inside web. Most students used different coloured wool or twine and we followed a step by step instruction sheet to help us.

This was the most difficult step but everyone got there in the end.
