Today’s frugal last minute gift idea for kids is a Make Your Own Cinnamon Ornaments Kit! Kids love to make their own creations, and this is a great way to get them actively involved in decorating the tree. The ornaments have the added benefit of acting as air-fresheners and will keep their fragrance for up to 4 years! A large jar of apple sauce and a large container of cinnamon will make several kits, and you could give one to each kid in the family.
- 1/2 cup store bought apple sauce — I used a small tupperware container filled with apple sauce.
- 1/2 cup ground cinnamon — You could use zipper plastic bags for this.
- cookie cutters
- drinking straw
- 1 roll of 1/8″ wide ribbon
