Join Jae Ireland, eHow Contributor, on a step-by-step tutorial on how to make Guatemalan Worry Dolls.

Worry dolls are popular in Guatemalan culture. When a child is scared or worried, he is given a small, cloth bag filled with small dolls made of bits of sticks and thread. The child is to tell her worries and fears to one of the dolls, and then place the doll under her pillow until morning. In the morning, the doll is gone, taking the worry along with it. Making your own worry dolls is a thoughtful gift idea for the children in your life, and they are fairly easy to do with minimal materials.
