Well, it seems we are all snowed in right now and the kids are all home on snow vacations! Here is an economical ornament idea that they can do with a little help from you! These Cinnamon Ornaments not only look great but they will make your home smell wonderful during the holidays! Here's what you need: 1 cup applesauce 1 1/2 cup of cinnamon (I use the 1.30 brand for these ornaments) 1/3 cup of white glue cookie cutters drinking straw (or something to make the hole with) colored ribbon Mix everything up together in a bowl, make sure it is completely blended. Then form into a ball and stick in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Sprinkly cinnamon on a cutting board and roll dough out to 1/4 inch thick (no thinner or the ornaments will break easily). Cut with cookie cutters, use the straw to make the hole at the top for hanging. Let them air-dry before stringing them up. You will be able to see when they are dry, they start turning a little lighter in color. These look great on the tree, or in a bowl with some greenery, you can even have the kids decorate them! Have fun and stay warm and safe!
