As promised here are some of our ornaments. The ones above were ones I decorated. We started this after I saw so many pins on pinterest of them. I decided to go with the recipe at Homemade Gifts Made Easy. I liked this one versus the other ones because it didn't have glue in it. I didn't like the idea of glue on my rolling pin. I also originally saw a recipe that called for 2 cups of cinnamon and bought accordingly, but then couldn't find that recipe. If I make these again I would use less cinnamon since the dough was a bit dry--though I'm guessing it depends on the applesauce you are using. Hazel loved helping mix by hand and get her hands dirty. We had a lot of fun with this recipe. I thought about taking pictures while mixing, but my hands were just as dirty. Sorry!
I had to take some away from her saying they were decorated enough. See below. But we had fun!
