Holiday Ornaments

Here is a great activity that is sure to get you in the Chrismtas spirit! 

Holiday Ornaments:
½ cup cinnamon
½ cup applesauce
1 teaspoon white school glue

Let your child mix the cinnamon, applesauce and glue in a bowl, or if they refuse to touch the mixture, in a plastic Ziploc baggie.

Roll the mixture out on a cookie sheet or waxed paper, about ½ inch thick.

Press cookie cutters into the thick/ fragrant dough.

With a toothpick, poke a generous hole near the top of each ornament.

Place the ornaments on a cookie rack and let them dry for 12 hours.

Thread pretty ribbon through the holes and hang the ornaments on the tree!

 Blending of ingredients with the hands is beneficial “messy play” for the tactile system. Using both hands on a rolling pin develops bilateral coordination. Pushing and pulling the rolling pin over the dough improves proprioception and grading of movement. Poking holes in the ornaments and threading ribbon through them promotes hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills. Smelling the fragrant mixture informs the olfactory sense.
