Simple dreamcatcher craft

Hi all,

I just wanted to share a very simple craft that my class did recently. We've been learning about the cultures from which different versions of Cinderella have come. Last week we focused on a Native American version, "The Rough-Faced Girl" or "The Invisible Warrior." 

I presented the story using this Powerpoint presentation from PPPST. They then carried out an investigation into different parts of Native American culture, focusing on the Ojibwe people. Following this, they made their own dreamcatchers.

They're simple to make. All you need is pipe-cleaners, wool, scissors, feathers and beads. Simply make a circle from the pipe-cleaner and secure by wrapping the ends around itself. Then tie a part of the wool to the pipe-cleaner and wrap around and around to create a web-like pattern. Add a loop of string at the top for hanging it. Attach some longer pieces to the bottom and thread on beads/ tie on some feathers.
