Crafting With Ballerinas!

I was asked to lead a craft session for 60 lovely ballerinas at their annual Sugar Plum Fairy Christmas Tea Party.  60!  Thankfully, there mothers were troopers and ready to pitch in with elbow grease!

Together they helped cut boards, sand, drill holes, paint and trace on basic shapes one chilly morning.

 This would have taken me hours on end...we were done by lunch!

Here's the prototype I gave to the committee...just have the girls paint like a coloring book...

in their best party dresses!  Yikes...that was scary!  
They pushed up their sleeves and got down to business.  These girls are used to hard work and will soon perform The Nutcracker the weekend of Dec. 11-14.  We broke the group down to two groups of 30...a little more manageable!

 It was a lot of fun and I really want to thank them for asking me a mom of boys, it's so much fun to see a girls only party!  Thanks to all the moms and dancers that helped with this!

We set them out on the walkway to dry and the girls had fun looking at all of their work!  Good luck with the performance!
