An old favorite gets revisited: Shrinky Dinks!

Q:What is this stuff? A: Thin plastic sheets that shrink down 45% when you put them in the oven. Not only does the material shrink, but whatever artwork you draw/print on them will also shrink with it.

Q: Why is this awesome? A: Because you can get impossibly tiny detailed artwork from what was once simply just artwork.

We took home a few different packs of PolyShrink and made our family craft night into an all out craft party. Shrinky Dinks have been around since the 1970′s and i remember making these when i was young kid. Now Im all grown up, but seeing my doodles and drawings wither, writhe and shrink in the oven is still magic. The mess factor is low, the fun factor is high and anyone who can hold a pencil can make these.
