Kids, Make a Nutcracker

Kids can put their creativity to the test by designing and making a nutcracker of the very own! Start right now sho you can be sure to meet the deadline of June 15, 2017

Just remember... it must be your own design. According to the child's age, the acceptable level of parental/guardian assistance with the construction will vary.


Great Fun

Along with our normal museum activities such as going on a nutcracker hunt, and winning a pin when you complete a hunt.  Little ones will receive a nutcracker color sheet to take home.

Visitors on Nutcracker Day willl also be able to actually crack a nut with a variety of different style nutcrackers.
