In school, group 8 have been making special worry dolls, with the help of Mrs Horsley and Mrs Glover. They used pipe cleaners for the form of the body and in true Guatemalan tradition, have decorated them with vibrant textile off- cuts. Worry dolls can be used to share your worries with before you go to sleep at night.
They look fantastic. Well done all of you!
The story of the worry doll is a local Mayan legend. The origin refers to a Mayan princess named Lxmucane. The princess received a special gift from the sun god that allowed her to solve any problem a human could worry about. The worry dolls are made of wire, wool and colourful textile leftovers.
