Craft a Guatemalan Worry Doll
Ancient Guatemalan tribes believed that if they told their worries to tiny dolls and placed them under their pillows at night, the dolls would take care of all the worrying for them and then their dreams would come swiftly and be care-free. Your child can make his own out of clothespins and fabric, and then set his own troubles away!
This project blends a unique sense of history and tradition and teaches your child about a different culture and belief. He will be using his own imagination in creating these dolls and perfecting his artistic skills at the same time.
