I don't know if Art With Jenny K realizes this, but assembling was the BEST part! This was magic for them. You can't tell from the picture, but there are 23 little bodies huddled around the rug in awe of the partial Nutcracker coming together.
I did not foresee the sense of teamwork and accomplishment that assembling would bring. So glad that I decided to do it with their "help" (I would pretend that I lost track of the numbers or I would purposely select the wrong piece). And of COURSE, they corrected me! I was also happy that it was SO much easier than I had imagined too. Seriously, it took no time at all.
We love our Nutcracker!
And we are all over the story!
And we are all over the music- the Russian dance is our favorite.
