Tis the season to be jolly and attempt to do a toddler craft project. Recently the Tiny Human discovered the fun of play dough so I thought that he would enjoy this project. The dough is really easy to make. Here is what you will need:
Apple Sauce- 2 cups
Cinnamon - 2 cups
Mix the apple sauce and cinnamon together in a bowl. You should get a nice firm dough. If it's too dry add more apple sauce, to moist add more cinnamon.
Roll out dough in between 2 pieces of wax paper with a rolling pin. Dough should be 3/8 of an inch thick. Be careful not to get the dough to thin or your ornaments will break easily when they are dry.
Use cookie cutters to make ornament shapes. Place shapes on a cookie sheet to dry. Using a tooth pick or straw poke holes in the shapes to string them when they are dry.
Next step is to let them dry. I baked mine in the oven at 200 F for 4 hrs. Flip shapes over after a couple of hours in the oven. Then let the sit over night before stringing. You can also let the shapes air dry for 2 days, turning a couple of times a day.
