Product Description

Based on Matt Rawle's book The Gift of the Nutcracker, this children's leader guide is part of a churchwide Advent program exploring the themes of Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker ballet and what they can teach us about the coming of Christ into the world.

The four lessons in this guide, designed for children in kindergarten through sixth grade, are presented in a large group/small group format. Children begin with time spent at activity centers, followed by time together as a large group. Children end the lesson in small groups determined by grade level. Each lesson plan contains the following sections:

  • Focus for the Teacher
  • Explore Interest Groups
  • Large Group
  • Small Groups
  • Reproducible Pages
  • Schedule

Session Titles:

  1. Clara: Waiting and Expectation
  2. Drosselmeir: God Is with Us
