Please describe your Nutcracker Ballet watercolors. They sound neat!

Woody - your triplet granddaughter dancers are terrific!
The 3rd graders I see for Art sang "Singing in the Rain" in their recent
choral concert. I asked them if any of them had ever seen the movie (the
original, not the "Muppet" version). None had. So I brought a rental tape
in to school and showed them Gene Kelly's famous son and dance! They were
blown away and left my classroom singing and tap-dancing! It made me think
how many wonderful dances I could show them in Art class. We already do
Nutcracker Ballet watercolors in class. SandyJ
