Applesauce & Cinnamon Ornaments

The day before Christmas Eve, I felt the need to do something crafty/baking…without the bulge!! I was pleasantly surprised at how simple these were to make and how much my {almost} 2 year old enjoyed playing with it! She didn't even try to eat the dough, which would have been fine anyway since it was simply two ingredients:

Applesauce and cinnamon.

Now, don't get me wrong, it's a crap-ton of cinnamon!

1 cup of applesauce
1 1/4 cup + dusting the counter of cinnamon

She just had fun playing with the cookie cutters too!

I used the mixer and it sure enough, clumped up well!

Rolled it out on the counter with a rolling pin and let her play a bit.

I had to actually do the "cutouts" but she helped!

She practiced her rolling technique.

Embracing the mess.

It was nice because we could go through the shapes and of course the sensory details were awesome too.

They smell delicious as the baked in the oven for a little over 2 hours at 250 degrees.  They are a bit delicate, and of course in the hands of a toddler, what wouldn't be!?  

We handed them out to family as small gifts on Christmas and of course kept one for us.  I will definitely make these again with the kids in the future!

Did you do any homemade crafts with your kiddies?
