One of my family’s favorite crafts to decorate for Christmas is to make these fun and kid friendly Handmade Christmas Tree Cinnamon Ornaments. The supplies are some that you probably already have on hand.
My 6-year-old and 12-year-old especially like to make these, and theses ornaments will make your house smell just like Christmas. All of that cinnamon is divine! My 6-year-old and 12-year-old especially like to make these. So gather up all of favorite Christmas cookie cutters and get ready to make ornaments!
- 2 bottles of 2,37 oz Cinnamon. (I buy the cheapest I can find and it works just fine.)
- Applesauce 3/4 cup
- Christmas Cookie Cutters
- Twine or Ribbon
- Preheat oven to 200°F.
- Mix Cinnamon and Applesauce until you form a ball of dough, knead until mixed thoroughly.
- Roll dough out with a rolling-pin until it is about 1/3 of an inch thick. You may want to use wax paper or plastic wrap and roll the dough out between these to keep it smooth and from sticking.
- Cut out your ornaments with your cookie cutters
- Poke a hole through the top of the ornaments with the straw so you can tie the ribbon or twine onto the ornament for hanging.
- Place on a cookie sheet and bake for 2 1/2 hours.
- Allow to cool.
- Tie ribbon or twine in a loop through the ornament.
- Hang on your tree!
I hope you enjoy making these as a family together! If you liked this post and want to read about more Christmas posts check out the iHomeschool Network 5 Days of Christmas Hopscotch.
