Looking for something fun to do with the kids this week? Make these very aromatic ornaments!!! You can use them on your tree as decorations or tie them onto gifts. They are very easy to make and need about 2 to 3 days to completely dry.
Here’s the recipe (but DON’T eat them, they are NOT edible!!):
2 cups Cinnamon
1-1/2 Applesauce, NOT chunky
2 tsp ground Nutmeg
2 tsp ground Cloves
4 Tb Elmer’s Glue
Mix all the ingredients well. When completely mixed, divide the dough in two parts, roll out one batch between sheets of plastic wrap. Keep the dough around a 1/4″ think, if you make it too thin the ornaments will curl or break. Using a toothpick or a small straw, put a hole in the top of the ornaments for the ribbon. Place on cookie racks to dry. After they are completely dry, you can carefully use a fingernail file to finish off the edges, tie a pretty ribbon in the ornament for hanging.
