Description

Creative design: Handmade Guatemalan Worry Dolls (Bright Minds: Years 3 - 5)

In traditional and modern times, worry dolls are given or lent to brooding and sorrowful children. They would tell their doll about their sorrows, fears and worries, then hide it under their pillow during the night. After this, the child will literally sleep over the whole thing. At the next morning, all sorrows are said to have been taken away by the worry doll.

During this workshop we will use textile leftovers, threads and colourful wool to make our own worry dolls to tell our problems to! These beautiful dolls will be treasured for a lifetime!
