During McKinley Elementary's Latin America celebration, Officer Samuelson had the opportunity to learn with the students how to make Guatemalan Worry Dolls. There are many stories and legends about worry dolls but here is one: "According to the Mayan legend, when worrying keeps a person awake, he or she tells a worry to as many dolls as necessary. Then the worrier places the dolls under his or her pillow. The dolls take over the worrying for the person who then sleeps peacefully through the night. When morning breaks, the person awakens without the worries that the dolls took away during the night."
