Shrinky Dinks

We made Shrinky Dinks.  
Super cool.
You can use the clear plastic salad bar containers.
We got ours from Kroger.
Just be sure it says it is #6 plastic.

I didn't take photos of this part,
but we scuff the surface a little with steel wool, 
then color on it using Sharpies
or color pencils.

Then  bake in a 350 degree oven for about 2 minutes,
maybe less.

Watch and you will know when it is ready.

Rachel is 26.
She had NEVER made Shrinky Dinks.


I am totally calling her mom.

She was so excited to watch them shrink.

And here she is with the final product.
We decided to make luggage tags.

Super cool!

If you do it too, be sure to punch a hole BEFORE you bake.

Make sure the hole is big enough to put your pinky finger through.

I bet it would make a superb Christmas gift or party favor!
