It is a project that the kids remember. . .
When we were talking about symmetry a 5th grader said "like when we did that Nutcracker project?" When I read their notebook responses to
"What was your all-time favorite art project?" many kids wrote "The Nutcracker!" years later.
Did they forget how I faithfully load and unload the kiln? Come in early to set up painting and pottery projects? Or stay up half the night fixing a computer glitch so they can edit a movie they made? Well, I guess they never see what goes on behind the scenes and sometimes simple is better.

Some classes painted and some classes colored their Nutcrakers.
So this is a favorite project of both mine and theirs. It's easy clean up, everyone is creative and successful, and they are proud of their results!
