Toddler Activities: Christmas Cinnamon Dough Ornaments
Toddler Activities: Cinnamon Dough Ornaments and Gift ties
A great hands on activity that your child will enjoy. Hang as an ornament on the Christmas tree, add to potpourri or embellish a gift as a tie on. However you choose to use these cinnamon pieces, it is something that will last for many years and retain that wonderful smell.
TIPS AND SUGGESTIONS
Add Bows, Sequins and RhinestonesGlue on bows, sequins, and other small decorations to make this Christmas cinnamon ornament.
We made a Gingerbread Bear as a Classroom Project and it made a cute Christmas gift for the parents. We embellished it with wiggly eyes, miniature candy canes and a mini bell ribbon around the neck. Children would return and visit me during Christmas and many mentioned they still had their ornament! Great toddler activity as well.
Scented Gift TiesMake small gingerbread ornaments using small cookie cutters. Tie ornaments onto gifts to add a special touch. These are about 1 inch tall by 3/4 inch wide and were brushed lightly with glitter glue for a nice sparkle. Easy toddler activity...use a small paint brush, apply the glitter glue and let your child brush it to spread it around.
See above for Recipe
Add a Little ColorUse molds to create ornament and brush top of design with acrylic paint. Use the tip of the brush to lightly brush over the design you want colored. For toddlers, apply the minimum amount of paint possible for them and you will get this feathery look.
Use mini cutters to make potpourri pieces. See Holiday Potpourri
