Homemade Shrinky Dinks
I've been working on a Valentines Day craft for my kids at school. I found a blog site that gave a great tutorial at Crafterella. You can find it here,.crafterella
I started saving #1 plastic at school. The cafeteria serves salads in a plastic container with the perfect lid. It's so funny because the children see me and start bringing me their plastic lids. Ha ha so funny!

Check this one out. Cooper is making one for Maura. Second grade love birds.

I punched holes in them first. Then I sanded one side lightly so that the paint will hold. The kiddos colored them with Sharpies under strict supervision, Ha ha.

In a 350 degree oven for about 1 min and their finished. I put my sons key there so you see how small they are. They shrunk over half their size.

Cute hua.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend.

Loving the shrinky dinks! This brings back so many memories of making these (Smurfs, Snorkles, etc). I feel like I might make some just for fun to pass the time while I await the baby to make an appearance. :)
