Sugar Aunts: Dream Catcher

Dream Catcher


This is a fun project that I helped my daughter create. She has been having some dreams that wake her up crying in the middle of the night. One night she told me she had a dream that she was in a pet store and a penguin picked her up, then an alligator chomped her arm! 
We thought a "dream catcher" would help catch those dreams before they get to her and she can dream about the things she wants to...like flying unicorns with sparkle princess'. 


We started out with an empty toilet paper roll, add some fun colors with paint, add a little sparkle with puffy paint and glitter...


Cut some yarn at different sizes...


Line them up from biggest to smallest (this was a fun challenge)...


Glue the yarn to a Popsicle stick...


String some beads and glue on some buttons...add a feather or two...


Add a little crepe paper and  TA-DA!   We have a dream catcher!  I loved listening to my daughter explain how the dreams come down.  She said they come from God through the toilet paper hole and sprinkle around with the beads and buttons and come out the other end and into her brain.


The final product.



Even Steeler Teddy thought it was pretty cool!

Gotta love a 4 year old imagination!
Let's hope for some happy dreams...she used it last night and woke up exclaiming, "It worked Mom, it really worked!"
