Nutcracker Activities

In a previous post, we talked about our annual gingerbread decorating party tradition. Now let’s take a look at another annual tradition the Nutcracker–with additional Nutcracker activities, too!

One of our favorite holiday traditions is going to the local production of the Nutcracker Ballet. We always have friends who are performing so it’s great to support them.

But, it’s also a great learning activity to spark more fun and educational studies for the holidays. This time of year often disrupts the regular routine and schedule. I say, embrace it. It’s ok to change up the plan with some alternative studies.
