Shrinky Dinks are so versatile: Mother’s day, birthdays, Father’s day, Teacher Appreciation. So, I compiled your favorite templates in to one four-page printable, just for YOU! So, what are you waiting for? Let’s go!
We’re right in the thick of a COVID-19. Basically we’re stuck at home trying to social distancing. So instead of going crazy, we’re going crafty with Shrinky Dinks. For those of you who don’t know what Shrink Dinks are, it’s basically plastic that shrinks and hardens when you cook it in the oven.
Shrinky Dinks 101
So, I ordered some Shrinky Crafts on Amazon but any #6 plastic will work. The kit I ordered online also included 20 keychains and markers as well. So it had everything I needed.
Basically you can trace or draw (with permanent marker) your own image on a clear sheet of plastic. Cut it out, punch a hole in it and cook it in the oven for five minutes at 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
