Art classes this week for our 2nd class students were based on the legend that Guatemalan parents tell their children. Guatemalan children have a set of tiny dolls that they tell their worries to and put under their pillows. The legend says all their worries will go away.  In art class we read “Silly Billy” byAnthony Browne about Billy who had all sorts of worries and couldn t sleep properly. His Grandmother made him some worry dolls. In class we made rather large worry dolls, more like peg dolls, and the children were very creative in designing their costumes.
