These Nutcracker printables are perfect for the holiday season! There are 70 pages of math and literacy activities geared for elementary aged kids!
I’ve mentioned before that my daughter is a ballerina. That means Nutcracker season is upon us here in my house.
We are gearing up for a busy month of rehearsals. With nine Nutcracker performances coming up next month, it’s certainly on my brain.
This month, I am spending many hours in my car writing and creating while E is in the studio rehearsing and training. Since I have The Nutcracker on my brain, it only made sense to choose Nutcrackers as the theme of this week’s printable!
Nutcracker Lesson Plans
Join Marie, Fritz, and the intriguing Nutcracker himself on a magical Christmas Eve adventure. Behold the frightful Mouse King, the elegant Sugar Plum fairies, and the entire Land of Sweets in this dazzling, gorgeously illustrated holiday classic. With spare text based on the story in the ballet, this book offers a front-row seat to the enthralling tale that is a perennial favorite of adults and children alike.
Once you’ve read the story a time or two (or more), extend the learning with this fun pack of math and literacy worksheets. Most of these worksheets are print-and-go! They’re perfect for busy homeschool moms and teachers like you.

If you’ve never had the opportunity to watch the Nutcracker in person, I highly recommend it. Even if you can only make it to a local dance recital, it’s such a great Christmas tradition.
Em and I go see it every year (and would even if she wasn’t a ballerina.) If you can’t watch it in person, check it out on DVD. Emma enjoys the Tom and Jerry version as much as she does the real thing!
