Winter Break is right around the corner, and I am already stressing a bit about keeping my three kids busy and productive!  One perfect activity is to have them make Christmas tree ornaments!  These can be put on your own tree to display or be made as gifts for others.  Either way, it’s fun for the whole family!

What you need:

  • 1 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1-1/2 cup ground cinnamon (look for the cheap, off-brand stuff, you aren’t gonna eat it)
  • 2 tablespoons craft glue, optional (I think this makes the ornaments a bit more sturdy, but you can do without it)
  • Mixing bowl
  • Drinking straw
  • Plastic wrap
  • Rolling pin
  • Baking racks and baking sheets
  • Cookie cutters
  • Sandpaper
  • Oven, food dehydrator, or just a spot out-of-the-way (for drying)

  • Ribbon or hooks for hanging
