Cinnamon-Scented Clay


  • 1 1/2 cups ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup applesauce
  • 1/3 cup white school glue (such as Elmer's)


  1. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Remove from bowl and knead until the mixture becomes a firm clay. Let sit for about half an hour.
  2. Using wax paper as a working surface and dusting surface with cinnamon if necessary, roll out clay with a rolling pin to approximately 1/8 inch thick. Use cookie cutters to cut desired shapes. Punch a hole with a drinking straw near the top if you are going to hang as ornaments. Or, form into 3-D sculptures, baskets, etc.
  3. Place finished creations on wax paper to dry, turning occasionally so that they dry evenly. It will take about five days for them to dry completely.
