Dream Catchers

Sophie has been having nightmares lately.
That makes a grand total of 3 children waking me up all night long.
I blame that damn Scooby-Doo show.

In hopes of getting even a little sleep, I took action.

We made dream catchers for school yesterday.
This kicked off our study of Native Americans.

It was delightfully simple.
First cut out the center of a paper plate.
Like such.

Pick out a handful of beads, while simultaneously spilling them all on the floor.

Grab a few feathers, and throw the rest around the room.

While the older child strings on the beads without causing havoc, try to wrestle the yarn away from the toddler.

An hour or two later, you should have something that looks like this.

Finally, hang up your beautiful creations.

Sounds like a boatload of fun, yes?

Even if it only keeps one child out of my bed, I call it a win.

Also, just because he is adorable.
The infant that slept through the whole process.
