Making Dream Catchers! 15 February

Yesterday we made some beautiful Dream Catchers!!

For our morning session we watched a video online to show us how to make the centre netting, but by the afternoon session I was an expert and was able to demonstrate for the students!

It was then time to get creative and decorate the dream catchers with hanging material, beads and shells!

They now have excellent souvenirs or gifts for friends and family back home!
