Our Holiday Craft is Making Me Gain Weight

A couple of days ago told you about the fun free Christmas craft eBook and the craft we were going to try.

We tried it-well at least a version of the Cinnamon Ornaments. If you are looking for a fun, easy, kid-friendly craft to try this holiday season I would recommend it. My two boys had a blast. This is a picture of our cinnamon ornaments hanging on our tree.

There are a few things you should know before trying this craft.
1. Don’t make them too thin. I think I tried making our dough stretch a little too far and our thinner ornaments broke.

2. Be patient. Don’t try moving them or inspecting them until they are completely dry. It took ours about a day and a half. If you move them too much they will break.

3. Be prepared to gain weight. That’s right. Every morning since making the ornaments our house has smelled like cinnamon rolls.  All of the sudden a bowl of Kashi cereal doesn’t sound so good. All I can think of is cinnamon rolls. So, we are eating cinnamon rolls and I am gaining weight. :0)
