Cinnamon Ornaments

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
cookie cutters
wax paper
Rolling Pin

Step 1:
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.
Step 2:
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.

Step 3:
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.

Step 4:
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.
