A 5-year-old’s homemade “dream catcher” made with a tampon delights the internet

A 5-year-old girl has left the internet in the lurch after a video of her dream catcher made out of a tampon went viral on social media.

The video, shared on TikTok by the girl’s mother under the username Renaesmiler, shows the tampon hanging on one of the shelves, decorated with colorful drawings.

The clip, which has been viewed over 1.3 million times and liked 93,500 times as of Monday, includes a caption that reads, “My five year old told me she made a dream catcher for her room.”

Kid’s Health says that by the age of six or seven, most children can grasp the basics of periods. According to the Mayo Clinic, periods usually start around the age of 12 but can happen as early as 8, so it’s important to discuss this topic early.

Both boys and girls should be made aware of their periods, says Kid’s Health, and parents should find a natural moment to talk about it.

This can be when children ask about puberty or body changes, when they ask where babies come from, or when you go to the store to buy pads or tampons.

It is estimated that people in the United States spend more than $2 billion each year on menstrual products, including but not limited to tampons, sanitary napkins, and menstrual cups.

On average, each menstruating person uses nearly 17,000 tampons or pads over the course of their lifetime.

Most of the users who commented on the video were amazed by the girl’s creativity. One user, Rhonda Jane, commented, “I mean, that’s it [definitely] made to catch something… but just not like that.”

Another user, WoodenPints_, joked, “A dream absorber?? Haha.” And Rita Iolanda added, “It sucks up all the negative energy.”

Jazz pointed out, “Oh, she decorated it and all.” And Brooke Stone said, “This is a masterpiece, please shadow box it.”

“That’s a profound work of art right there. I’m not even joking, keep it and give it to her when she’s 35,” said emmafry596. And Maryslusarchuk added: “At least she didn’t use them as curlers to curl her hair!” shelly_bel said: “Very creative!”

Another user, Eva.walig0ra, said, “Wait a few years until she finds out what it’s actually used for.” And Lyndabobs added, “This is the most beautiful dream catcher I’ve ever seen.”

Other users shared their own personal experiences. Jesshampson95 said: “My sister thought they were earrings and always tries to wear them.” And Billiusz added: “[oh my god] That was me, when I was younger I used to tell my mom I built a rocket.”
