~ Guatemala ~

worry doll making with piper cleaners and embroidery floss

Our third meeting found us in Guatemala making worry dolls and tortillas.We had some girls rolling out dough and frying up tortillas in the kitchen while others got their craft on with the worry dolls. The girls soon developed a system that worked for them in creating the dolls. Some enjoyed constructing the bodies while others found wrapping them to be more their thing. Pure love for this process. While they wrapped, I read this book. It was long enough that it gave them something to listen to while they settled into their work and the crafting was a perfect accompaniment to this longish story. A win, win!
