Well we’re really on the Christmas countdown now! Lots of last minute tasks going on right?! Shopping, wrapping, baking…the list for me is endless. Gah. I’m hoping to have all my gifts bought by tomorrow night as I hit the stores yet again. I’m really really really really really looking forward to going home to my Mom & Dad’s with my family to unplug, sip eggnog, skate and stuff my face. Yes.
But there are always those last minute gifts that creep up…the kind where your 11 year old declares that every single one of her friends and family members MUST have a gift from her. Bless her heart…but all I heard was more money and more time. BUT, we brainstormed and decided that it would be great to make something from the heart for all those on her list.
So we made cinnamon salt tree ornaments (you might recognize this little project from my facebook page)! These handmade gifts are thoughtful and perfect for your kids to give their teachers, friends and grandparents. They’re also a great activity to occupy the kids over the Christmas break!
These ornaments are quick & easy to make, and your kids will love making them! It’s the kind of craft that really requires not much adult supervision. All I did was make the dough and roll it out, and the kids did all the rest!
So get out those dusty cookie cutters and let’s get creating!

Oh…and don’t be tempted to eat the dough…it’s very very salty…haha…kids 😉
So fun and so cute!
