Nesting Nutcrackers

December 6, 2014

11:00 AM to 4:00 PM

Family Discovery Gallery

In countries from China and Japan to Russia and Poland and many others comes the idea of “nesting figures”. These character figures might be people or animals that stack over one another or they can be displayed individually. Kate Baumgart thought it would be fun to make some nutcrackers in different sizes that can stack together or stand up on their own. You decide if you want them to look alike or if each one has a distinct appearance.

Family Programs are offered on Saturdays in the Family Discovery Gallery on a drop-in basis from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm. The programs are geared for children ages 5-12. Children must be accompanied by an adult. No pre-registration is required. Programs are free with admission to the Paine (free for Paine Members and Big Brothers Big Sisters participants).
