Our family loves giving gifts that are both thoughtful and personal. I have a simple and inexpensive recipe for no bake cinnamon ornaments that makes this a thoughtful, fun, and fragrant gift. The holidays are already stressful, but this project is all fun! This is a much more enjoyable experience than shopping.
I have the bad habit of pinning a lot of recipes and projects that aren’t really practical. They’re just pretty. No bake cinnamon ornaments are easy, kid friendly & fun!
The holidays are all about family for us. My Mema never waited for special occasions to bake. Cinnamon ornaments were a way for her to give a gift that was handmade with the same kind of love that she baked into her cookies. It’s the same kind of love that has me revisiting her recipes all these years later. I love sharing my traditions with my children. I also hope that someday, they’ll do the same with their kids.

You might have an entire room or two devoted to toys in your home, but that won’t prevent kids from complaining they are bored.
Our family has two children; 6 year old boy and 9 month old girl. They may not have much in common, but they often enjoy playing together. When I paid closer attention, I noticed they had a mutual enjoyment for stuff that wasn’t toys.
