With the cold Winter season upon us, lots of families are looking for ways to keep the kids entertained indoors. A great way to do is through a fun and creative activity called Shrinky Dinks.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Shrinky Dinks shrink to approximately 1/3rd their original size and actually become 9 times thicker. Simply place the Shrinky Dinks piece you created into a Home Oven or Toaster Oven for 2 magic minutes. Watch as your creation gets smaller and smaller. It’s “MAGICAL” and it’s so quick and easy to do!

OUR REVIEW

We received a pack of Misty White Shrinky Dinks to try out for ourselves and the girls couldn’t wait to get started. I really liked the full sized blank sheets because it allowed us to get really creative. We browsed online for a while and found a Hello Kitty color page that we thought would work great.

Here’s what we did:

  • Print out a copy of the image and traced it onto the Misty White Shrinky Dinks sheet.

  • Color in the image using colored markers. The only think you need to be careful about is the type of pens you use. If you use a permanent marker to trace the image, you can’t use a permanent marker to color it in because they will smear.
  • Cut out your picture using a straight or scrapbooking scissors. Make sure you cut it straight because when it shrinks you’ll be able to tell if it was cut crooked. If you’re going to use a hole punch, now is the time to do it.
  • Place your project onto a sheet from a paper bag and then onto a baking pan. Bake at 325 degrees for about 4 minutes.

  • When you take it out of the oven, it may looked curled. Get a book or magazine to flatten the Shrinky Dinks out. It will become hard once it cools so you need to work quickly. The only downside to this step is that a couple of times our Shrinky Dinks curled and got stuck to the other side. We were unable to unstick it and ended up having to start all over again.
