Kid-Friendly Craft: Cinnamon Ornaments

School's out for the holidays.

For those of you that are parents, that signals just the beginning of the "I'm Bored" and "There's Nothing to Do!" doldrums...

I have a Christmas craft for you that will make something beautiful for your home (that smells amazing!) and give those idle hands something to do: Cinnamon Ornaments.

What You’ll Need:

3/4 c applesauce

4.12 oz. ground cinnamon (large bottle)

bamboo skewer or drinking straw


How to:

This is so simple, I’m just going to give you instructions and let you run with it, k?

1. Preheat oven to 200°F. Mix applesauce and cinnamon in small bowl until a smooth ball of dough is formed. (You may need use your hands to incorporate all of the cinnamon.) Using about 1/4 of the dough at a time, roll dough to 1/4-inch to 1/3-inch thickness between two sheets of plastic wrap. Peel off top sheet of plastic wrap. Cut dough into desired shapes with 2- to 3-inch cookie cutters. Make a hole at top of ornament with drinking straw or skewer. Place ornaments on baking sheet.

2. Bake 2 1/2 hours. Cool ornaments on wire rack. (Or, to dry ornaments at room temperature, carefully place them on wire rack. Let stand 1 to 2 days or until thoroughly dry, turning occasionally.)

3. Insert string/ribbon through holes and tie to hang.
