You gotta love when you get fun therapy assignments, and from 2 different therapists to boot! Trevor is supposed to work with different types of dough to help build up his fine motor strength as well as improve hand-eye coordination and work on sensory integration. Since Christmas is almost here and he loved making the Salt Dough Ornaments, we decided to make Cinnamon Dough Ornaments as well. Trevor loved this project! And he ate so much dough, he smelled like cinnamon for hours afterward, lol 🙂
What you need:
Yep, 2 ingredients is really all you need!
How to Make It:
- Mix together equal parts applesauce and cinnamon until a dough forms.
- Roll or pat the dough flat.
- Cut out shapes with cookie cutters.
- Poke a hole in the top of each one so that you can hang them.
- Place on a cookie sheet and let dry. (Ours took a few days to dry)
These are so easy to make! To make one cookie sheet full of ornaments we used one cup of applesauce and one cup of cinnamon.

Enjoying making a mess with the dough:
After adding some sprinkles, we let them dry:
When they were dry I added ornaments hooks and hung them on the tree with Trevor’s salt dough ornaments:
Trevor had so much fun doing this, we might even make more before Christmas is here!
