Cinnamon Ornaments

We tried our hand at some cinnamon ornaments on Monday night. They were a fun and easy activity though Leia did say "I keep smelling a HORRIBLE smell." You can always count on Leia to be a stick in the mud during things like this. So if you want to try it... just mix up 1 cup of cinnamon, 1 T nutmeg, 3/4 cup applesauce and 2 T of glue together. Knead it like dough. Roll it out 1/4 inch thick and cut with cookie cutters. They take a couple of days to dry (remember to flip them over a few times to speed up drying. We may try our hand at adding some paint when they are dry. Photos courtesy of Bella.
Stay tuned for another project that I stayed up too late making last night. I think they turned out really cute though. I just need Leia to come home from school and pose in it for me.
