Cinnamon Applesauce Ornaments

Every year, my favorite Christmas ornaments to make with my students are made from two simple ingredients: cinnamon and applesauce.  That’s it.  It’s pretty incredible how they set up, actually! Each year, we fill the rooms and halls with the warm, spicy aroma of cinnamon.  As we were making the ornaments this year, some of my former students walked by…

Salt Dough Christmas Ornaments

Every year, I love making Christmas ornaments with my students.  First, we decorate our classroom tree, and then they take their ornaments home and decorate their family’s tree.  One of the ornaments we made this year were salt dough ornaments.  I do not do this activity every year with my students, as it depends on the amount of time we…
