  • Have you ever had a nightmare? What did you do?
  • What is a dream catcher for? A dream catcher is a handmade hoop, with string woven through it and decorated with special items such as feathers or beads. Sometimes people hang dream-catchers over their bed to protect themselves from nightmares when they are sleeping.
