kids worry dolls

This project is intended for kids ages 4+. Worry dolls are small handcrafted dolls that originated in Guatemala. Legend says that kids can tell the dolls their worries, then place them under their pillows; come morning, the dolls will have given them the wisdom to do away with their worries. See instructions to make your very own worry doll!
Step 1

Wrap craft cord around a clothespin. Start just below the "head" and continue all the way to the bottom. Create a pattern, tie another shade of craft cord to the previous one and continue wrapping. When you get to the bottom, tie a knot, then add a drop of glue to the cord to secure it in place. Trim excess cord and let dry.

Step 2

To make hair, wrap black yarn around 2-3 fingers about 10 times. Slide the loops off of your fingers, then tie a piece of yarn around the middle of the loops. Cut the loops open, then glue hair to the doll's head. Spread the yarn to cover the head.
TIP: You can use a black marker to fill in any gaps showing on the head.

Step 3

Draw a simple face onto the doll using markers.
