This dream catcher craft can easily be modified to fit the abilities of older children.

Materials Needed:
Paper plate
Crayons, colored pencils, or markers
Hole puncher
Yarn
Feathers
Beads
Glue
Scissors

Instructions:
Cut out the center of the paper plate.

Punch 8 to 10 holes around the inside edge of the plate
Punch one hole is at top and two holes are at the bottom on the outside edge of the plate.

With the crayons, colored pencils, or markers decorate the paper plate.

Cut piece of yarn about 5 to 6 feet long.

Thread one end of your yarn up through one of the bottom outside edge holes, being careful to leave at least 6 to 8 inches of yarn from the other end of the string hanging down out of the hole.

Keep threading your yarn through the holes you made earlier.

There is no right or wrong pattern, but you do want to make a few criss cross patterns to make it look like an authentic dream catcher.

Thread the yarn through the last hole at the bottom outside edge when you've finished making your pattern through the paper plate. You want this end to hang down as well.

Slide a few beads onto the pieces of yarn that are hanging down from the dream catcher and tie a knot to keep the beads in place.

Tie a few feathers to the pieces of yarn that are hanging down.

Thread a small piece of yarn through the top center hole. Tie the yarn in a knot to create a circle that the dream catcher can be hung from.
