Visit the library to learn how to make your own Worry Dolls. Pick up a supply packet to make at the library or to take home. Worry dolls (also called trouble dolls; in Spanish, Muñeca quitapena) are small, hand-made dolls that originate from Guatemala. According to legend, you are intended to tell your worries to the Worry Dolls, then place them under your pillow before going to bed. By morning the dolls are said to gift the wisdom and knowledge to eliminate your worries. Supplies are limited.
