The Nutcracker Craft
After you read The Nutcracker, ask students to imagine a toy coming to life. Have them draw toys they wish would come to life. Teacher or student writes word on the line.
Note: In our transitional kindergarten classroom, we complete this craft over the course of two days. On the first day, we draw and write. We color and cut out the head. On the second day, we cut and glue the rest of the craft pieces to complete the project.

Let’s Get Krafty!
Krazy for Kindyland crafts are created for students ages preschool through third grade. Products are designed with efficiency in mind, as I certainly understand the KrAzY schedule of a teacher! Craft pieces are also designed to use as much paper space as possible, as conservation is another constant thought on the busy teacher’s mind. Depending on the craft, you might choose to slightly enlarge the pieces based on the needs and ages of your students, the time of the school year you complete the craft, and/or your preferences. It is helpful to have students lay out their plan before gluing.
