Make a Mayan dream catcher

Events: 
Groups: 

The Mayans believed that the night air is filled with dreams, both good and bad. It became impossible for The Gods to protect all the children from bad dreams that creep into their minds at night. Mothers and grandmothers wanted to save their children from worry and fear, so they began to weave magical webs, later known as Dream Catchers, which would filter out all bad dreams and only allow good thoughts to enter their heads. The purpose of these Dream Catchers was to catch bad dreams in the net that would disappear at daylight.

Body Snatchers

Events: 
Groups: 
Periods: 

The streets of Victorian Britain were crowded by poor and desperate people. Some broke the law just to survive, other became victims – even though over 200 crimes carried the death penalty. You could be hanged for anything from murder to pickpocketing and being out at night with a blackened face. Despite these harsh penalties, the criminal elements of society were still determined to make their living by ill-gotten gains.
