3 Wonderful DIY Dream Catcher Ideas for kids

Dream catchers started in the mid-1800s by the Ojibwe tribe and later became an integral part of Native American culture. 

The Concept behind inventing a Dream Catcher

Native Americans invented the concept of dream catchers to help sleepers have a sound sleep filled with only good dreams. They believe that both good and bad dreams fill the night air. Hanging a dreamcatcher near the bed while sleeping does the job of catching only good dreams for the sleeper.

The dream catchers are thoughtfully designed in a manner that allows only good dreams to pass through them. It is believed that good dreams can successfully pass through the dream catcher. Good dreams are smart enough to slip through the uneven holes and slide down the dream catcher. Bad dreams, on the other hand, get tangled and eventually fail to reach the sleeper.

Sounds interesting, right? But do you know dream catchers are ideally used by parents worldwide to help their children stay away from nightmares while sleeping? Yes, you heard that right!
