First we made the dough (1 cup apple sauce, 1/4 cup white school glue and lots of cinnamon until you get the consistency you like). Mix together and roll flat (I used my palm to flatten the dough) onto wax paper. Cut out shapes, poke top of ornament with straw to make a hole for hanging after cooking. Bake at 350 for approximately 40 minutes.
This picture was before baking. This part of the activity took all morning
And this picture was after baking and tying on the strings
Next the children added lots and lots of glue and stuck glitter gems, pompoms and buttons onto the ornaments. This part of the activity took a good 20 minutes. (Jada refused to get out of her P.J's today. Pick your battles right).
Let dry completely. DO NOT LET YOUR TODDLER TOUCH THEM IN THE DRYING PROCESS! I turned my back for a second and Jada broke a few snowmen in half.
