A craft a day. An ambitious goal, seeing as how we rarely do crafts beyond coloring with crayons...but we're gonna try! 1 down, 30 to go...
Today's craft, Cinnamon Applesauce Ornaments
Step 1: have 3 year old gather random objects that she thinks we will need for the craft
|Maya thought it was very important that we drink pretend tea before we got started|
Step 2: mix equal parts cinnamon and applesauce
|add a little glue to help stabilize the ornaments|
Step 3: roll out ornament dough between 2 sheets of parchment paper
|we actually found that this made it more difficult and ended up using our hands, but check out Maya's face. I had to include these pictures! :)|
Step 4: gather cookie cutters
Step 5: make sure cookie cutters taste ok
Step 6: cut our ornaments
Step 7: place ornaments on cookie sheet and let dry at room temperature, or speed up the process by drying them in the oven at 200 degrees for a couple of hours
|We poked holes in the ornaments for ribbon using straws, but I took this picture before that was done|
A super bonus of this project (if you bake them in the oven) is that it makes your house smell SUPER yummy and Christmassy! Yay!
More to come!
