Last night we made dreamcatchers (Baker Ross). We showed the girls what to do, but let them do it all themselves.

That resulted in a few finished, perfect dreamcatchers, a few finished but not perfect ones, a few that just ran out of time and a few that decided they would take theirs home unfinished so they could unlace them and try again to improve how it looked.

It was a good personality guide: the girl who rushed to be first then had to keep coming back for help because she was rushing, the girl who made perfect perfect flowers but took ages so didn't finish, the girl who steadily plodded through and achieved everything then helped others on her table, the girl who carefully colour-matched everything to her thread and feathers.

These cost around 50p each, you can make them for less, my daughter's Guide unit made them a while back with paper plates and a stash of beads and feathers, but this made it easy for us since we knew we had everything.

And the results were great!

we make these at the Walsingham Childrens Pilgrimage. My daughter has 2 hanging up at the end of her bed now. I think they are a great craft and she really believes they work. :0)
