happy Friday & a craft & a sweet pic

TGIF y'all.  It's been a long week full of runny noses, whininess and tons of amazing cuddle sessions.  I am thankful for health and a week ahead with family in ND.
If you are itching to create with your little ones this weekend this is the perfect craft.  We made these this morning with 3 of Reagan's friends and it was such a hit.  The texture is a lot like homemade playdough.  Quite messy but easy to clean up and they smell amazing (and remind me of my childhood).

cinnamon applesauce ornaments

1 cup applesauce
1.5 cups ground cinnamon

Mix cinnamon into applesauce slowly until it forms a ball without sticking to your hands.  Sprinkle cinnamon on counter and have child roll/press out dough with their hands.  Cut out shapes with cookie cutters. 

Poke a small hole in the top when a pen so you can string some twine through to hang on your tree.

Let dry for about 48 hours.
This year I started a little preschool time twice a month on Friday mornings in our home.  Today we tried doing a little nativity drama.  Hilarious.  I love these sweet kids!
