Cinnamon Ornaments

Kristina has inspired us to make ornaments for our Christmas Tree.  We followed this recipe from McCormick to make these easy baked ornaments.

My daughter thought it was so much fun to shake an entire jar of cinnamon into the mixture . . .

 . . . and to use her hands to mix the dough together!

We decided to make Gingerbread Men, Stars & Airplanes.  If you decide to make these, be sure to make a hole large a little larger than you might think (as toddler fingers have a hard time getting ribbon through a small hole). 

This is a good project to do right before nap time - as they take TWO HOURS to bake (at a very low temperature).  Our house smelled amazing!


  1. We made these this week in my preschool classes for the children to give to their parents for Christmas. Such a great craft!

  2. I don't see the recipe
