Product Description
Bring the music of Peter Tchaikovsky’s, "Dance of the Reed Pipes" or "Dance of the Mirlitons" from The Nutcracker Ballet to life for your students with these cute finger puppets. Some suggested uses....as part of your guided listening (students move the character whenever they hear that theme), demonstrate tempo, move when they hear a certain instrument, create “synchronized finger puppet dances,” as a workstation, or just for extra fun! Students can even make them dance along as they watch video clips of the song.

Included in this set:
* 10 different pages of layouts/designs that include color images as well as B&W (for your students to color)
*Each layout includes a set with cutting guide lines for the younger ones and a set without the lines
*Images of marzipan (sugary concoctions made into shapes of fruit during the time the music was written) as well as sugary flutes

No need for card stock - regular paper works fine. Cut out and tape around the finger. You can have your students color the black and white images or simply print the "color" versions. The color images even look great printed in black and white on a basic copier.
