Elmer's Christmas Ornaments


This is one of the easiest and fun Christmas crafts!   My boys loved mixing the glue, applesauce, and cinnamon together.  Miles will be taking these to school so his classmates can decorate them for the Christmas party.  These also make great family gifts and cute tags for jars and presents!

Directions:

Take 1 cup of applesauce, 1/3 cup of glue, and 1 1/2 cups of cinnamon and mix together in a bowl.  I sprinkled some cinnamon on the counter instead of flour and rolled the dough out (next time I would roll out a little thicker) and used my favorite cookie cutters to create fun shapes.  We have a Christmas light, stocking, and mitten. Then take a straw and poke a hole.  Bake at 200 degrees for 1 hour and cool on cooling rack.  The house smells wonderful and so will your hands :) 

I purchased glitter, pom poms, bells, puff paint, and yarn to decorate.  Have fun!
