DIY Nutcrackers Figures

It’s all drama at our house, and I mean the good kind!  David took our daughter to the Nutcracker a few weeks ago and all she wants to do is role play the characters.  She eats and sleeps in a ballet costume and if Tchaikovsky isn’t playing thru the speakers, she’s humming her version of it.  E has been asking for a Nutcracker of her own and here is our quick DIY version.  I just covered a couple paper towel tubes with strips of colored construction paper.  Clear tape and sharpie finished the job with just enough details to identify the characters.

    LOVE LOVE LOVE this gorgeous, simple nutcracker…….in a child’s mind, the simple, the more compelling the invitation to imagine, non?

    So is she going to be a dancer, a sculptor, a printmaker or a neurosurgeon?

  4. OMG Laurie you are a riot! If she follows in our eclectic footsteps, maybe she’ll be all of them!!
