Christmas Ornament/Tags

This is really fun to do with your children.  The boys and I really had a Great time!  From rolling and cutting to turning and decorating!  Enlist the help of your little elves and have a fun afternoon together!


Christmas Ornaments/Tags

1 cup applesauce
1 cup ground cinnamon...I bought mine at Walmart for 50 cents.  Buy a couple jars
1/4 cup glue...optional, I just spread a little glue on the back instead
parchment paper
cookie sheets

Mix applesauce, cinnamon and glue (if using) together.  I made mine the night before and put in the refrigerator.  

When ready to roll, sprinkle a little cinnamon on the counter/workplace and rolling pin then roll to 1/4".  You don't want it too thin.  One twin had a great time rolling out the dough! ~smiles~

Cut out in desired shapes and put on cookie sheets lined with parchment paper.  Place in a 200 degree oven, turning every 15 minutes, until dry or almost dry and let them finish drying on the counter.  You can also leave them out for a couple of days instead of drying them in the oven, turning every few hours or so, until dry. 
Give your little elves paint, glue, glitter or glitter glue to decorate.
