Here at S. Flynn we are so excited that it is almost Christmas time and to spread a little bit of that Christmas cheer with you, we have another Freebie! We will be giving you a step-by-step process for making Applesauce Cinnamon Ornaments. This is a perfect activity to keep the kids occupied during Christmas break and also create memories you can keep and decorate with for a lifetime. Another way to use these ornaments is as gift tags which adds a little personal spark to the gift. I did this with my kids last year and they loved it! I had each kid pick out a cookie-cutter they wanted to use and we even did some for their cousins and for Mimi and Pop Pop.
We hope you enjoy these as much as we do!
-Preheat your oven to 200 degrees.
-Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
-In a large bowl, combine all ingredients, mixing until well combined and dough begins to form.
– Sprinkle the surface with extra cinnamon to avoid sticking, empty dough mixture onto the surface, and knead the dough, then roll into a ball.
-Roll out your dough flat, about 1/4 inch thick.
-Using your Christmas cookie cutters, or any cutters your kiddos might want to use to cut out cinnamon shapes and lay them onto the parchment paper.
-Using a drinking straw, poke a hole in the ornament where you want the string to go through.
-Leave a little bit of space as a buffer so the ornament does not break.
-Bake your applesauce cinnamon ornaments in the oven for 2 hours.
-Let your applesauce cinnamon ornaments cool, add some ribbon or twine to your ornament and hang.
