Hello readers! I’m very excited to share a guest post today from Darlene Beck Jacobson.

Here is a great last minute gift idea your kids can make for grandparents:
Take 1 cup of cinnamon, 1 cup of applesauce and 3 tablespoons of white glue. Mix it into a dough . Roll it out and cut into festive shapes with cookie cutters. Poke a hole in the top with a straw to put a ribbon through. Let them dry over night. When dry, you can wrap them as is (they smell heavenly) or paint the front with glue and sprinkle with glitter for a “sparkly” touch.
I made these with my children years ago and they still smell great every Christmas when I hang them on the tree.

During this holiday season, tap your “inner bird” and sing!
