My boys and I love to make these Cinnamon Ornaments each year. Hanging from the Christmas Tree or attached to homemade gifts, they will be treasured by all who receive.

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!
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
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.
