Dreamcatcher Story 1 - The legend of the dreamcatcher to tell your child.🌙👪
Long ago, in the land of the Native Americans, there was a beautiful and wise old woman named Willow. Willow was known throughout the land for her special gift of being able to weave dreams.
She would take the most beautiful and peaceful dreams and weave them into delicate webs, which she called "dreamcatchers."
At night, Willow would hang the dreamcatchers above the beds of the children in the village. As the children slept, the dreamcatchers would catch all of the bad dreams and hold onto them.
In the morning, the bad dreams would disappear, and the children would wake up feeling refreshed and happy.
One day, a group of mischievous fairies came to the village and saw the dreamcatchers hanging above the beds. They were curious and wanted to know more about these strange and beautiful webs. So, they flew over to Willow's hut and asked her to tell them about the dreamcatchers.
Willow was happy to oblige and explained to the fairies that the dreamcatchers were made to protect the children from bad dreams.
The fairies were fascinated by this and asked Willow if they could learn how to weave the dreamcatchers. Willow agreed, and for many days she taught the fairies how to weave the delicate webs. The fairies were quick learners and soon became expert dreamcatcher weavers.
They were so grateful to Willow for teaching them this special skill that they decided to use their powers to make sure that the dreamcatchers always worked.
From that day on, every time a child had a bad dream, the fairies would fly to the child's bedside and sprinkle magic dust over the dreamcatcher.
The dust would make the bad dream disappear, and the child would wake up feeling happy and refreshed. And so, the legend of the dreamcatcher was born.
To this day, people all over the world hang dreamcatchers above their beds, hoping to catch the good dreams and banish the bad ones.
And if you're very lucky, you might just see a fairy flying by on a moonlit night, sprinkling magic dust over your dreamcatcher to keep your dreams safe.
