|Green Kid Crafts Worry Dolls|
Ironically, one of the Green Kid Crafts we received were the Worry Dolls (shown above). Our family is full of professional worrywarts, including Miss O., so when I told her the story behind the Guatemalan worry dolls, and how you put one under your pillow, tell it your worry and your worry is taken away while you sleep, she was thrilled. We shared a lot of giggles making these worry dolls together. All of the materials we needed to make the dolls were provided in a bag, (we needed to provide glue and scissors), and the instructions were super easy to follow -- even reminding you that the most important thing was to have fun and enjoy making the craft together -- not to focus on the outcome. We gave Sally (what Miss O named her doll) all of Miss O's worries about having bad dreams at bedtime tonight, and I am hoping she's currently working like a charm.
Green Kid Crafts is a monthly subscription service that you can currently sign up to receive for 3, 6, or 9 months. Soon to be offered is a $15 per month plan as well. I think it's well worth the price because each month you receive three complete craft projects to create with your kids. All of the projects are designed by hand and comprised of non-toxic, natural and eco-friendly supplies.

Green Kid Crafts offsets 100% of the carbon dioxide they generate with their business, and they help fund the development of renewable energy projects in the United States.
Best of all, they take the guesswork out of which craft projects to do with your kids, they eliminate the need to drive to the store to buy supplies -- and they made me feel less squeamish, and more excited and inspired about getting crafty.
