Guatemalan worry dolls were made by adults for their children to tell their worries too. Children used to put them under their pillows at night and the doll, and their worries, were gone in the morning (removed by parents when they slept).
Telling your worries to someone always helps, but what if there is no one around when you need them, or you just can’t tell anyone that worry just yet? Use these easy to follow instructions on how to make a worry doll, then you’ll always have someone to share your worries with.
