It’s time to dress your kids in festive pjs and start a new holiday tradition! This was the first year we have made our own cinnamon ornaments and it was super easy and made my house smell amazing! I didn’t even have to go to the store because I had all the ingredients in my pantry! My boys had so much fun and I loved their choices of Christmas ornaments: dinosaurs, bones, trophys and so on! Boys will be Boys! They especially loved adding the glitter. They went a little Glitter Crazy but it was fun! I hope you give this a try!
Ingredients: (Makes 12 regular size cookies/ornaments)
- 1 cup ground cinnamon
- 1 cup applesauce
- 2 Tbsp of school glue
- 1 Tbsp ground cloves *optional
- 1 Tbsp ground nutmeg *optional
- Mixing Bowl
- parchment paper
- rolling pin
- cookie cutters
- baking sheet
- string and decorations
Preheat oven 200°
Mix all ingredients in a bowl by hand for a couple minutes and roll into a ball.
Sprinkle cinnamon on your rolling surface so it won’t stick.
Use rolling pin and roll out the dough to about 1/4 inch thickness.
Cut out shapes with cookie cutters and use a straw to make a hole at the top.
Place on baking sheet (I put parchment paper under mine) and cook for approx. 2 hours, or you can air dry in sun for 4 or 5 days.
After dried and cooled down decorate and then add string!
