It’s the last day of summer for my daughter Allie, who starts FIRST GRADE tomorrow!!! To celebrate, here is one of her favorite crafts to make!
Tell me you remember SHRINKY DINKS from the 90’s! Color on a piece of plastic, put it in the oven, and out comes a little shrunken charm? Well, if you don’t, here is how you and your kids can make this simple (but really cool) craft. Let’s get started!
What you’ll need:
- Number 6 plastic (you can find this on the lids of to-go containers, or the aluminum containers at the grocery store. Look for the triangle with the number 6 inside.
- Sharpies (regular markers won’t work)
- An oven preheated to 350 degrees
So go ahead and preheat your oven first, and then cut out your plastic sheets.
Using a white sheet of paper underneath, draw your object, and color it in with the sharpies. We did a cupcake and a Shopkin. If you have a coloring book or something like that with an image, you can trace it!
Cut out your image, and place it on a cookie sheet.
I hope you liked this DIY and will try it!
