Worry Dolls

Another craft good for children. Worry dolls are a traditional craft from Guatemala (South America). Tell your worry doll what is worrying you, place under your pillow, and the worry doll will look after all your worries.
Clothes pin 
         - old fashion type without metal spring 
         or can use small size from craft store 
paints
cloth 
yarn 
markers 

You may have seen Worry dolls before, they are sometimes made with toothpicks and colored floss. This can be hard to work with if you are a small child. So I thought why not the clothes pins? So just paint, color of wrap material around the clothes pins to look like a person.
