Early finishers will enjoy drawing this nutcracker. A sub would also enjoy having an activity to hand to students who need to occupy their time when their assignment is complete. This could be a great story starter for Writers' Workshop. This is a fun activity to have on hand any time of the year. This worksheet shows sample drawings and choices for nutcracker body parts, but students may decorate it any way they wish. The only supplies needed are pencils and crayons.
