Last night I had a great time making cinnamon applesauce ornaments with a great group of children at Northwest Library. Here are few of the finished products we ended up with.
If you would like to make these with your kids the recipe is really easy. You simply need to mix 1 cup of cinnamon with 3/4 cup of applesauce. Stir the mixture until it starts to become a moist ball of dough. Next roll the dough out to about 1/4 of an inch thick with a rolling pin. Last use cookie cutters to cut out cute Holiday shapes.
Use a toothpick or straw to poke a hole in the top and carefully thread some ribbon through.You will need to let your ornaments air dry for 2-3 days. Once they are completely dry you can even decorate them with paint or glitter. They also make your house smell great!
If you are looking for more fun Holiday crafts to do with your kids stop by one of the metropolitan libraries and find some great kids craft books!
