Ginger Bread Man Cinnamon Ornament

These ornaments are so very fun to make.  They need to be mixed, shaped, dried and painted- all things that kids, both big and small love to do.  And feel free to use any style cookie cutters that you like on these.  We made ginger bread men and snowman, but you cut and decorate these sweet smelling ornaments any way that you like.
