Do you remember Shrinky Dinks
? They were very popular when I was a kids. In fact you weren't cool if you had never played with these things. You know, the plastic beads that you assembled into a shape, then melted together to make it stick?
The problem I always had with them was that I wanted to make my own designs. I didn't want He-man
. I wanted ... well I don't remember but I wanted to make my own.
If only I had known Chrisjob from Curbly
. He shows you how to to make you own shrinky plastic
thingys. In his step by step tutorial
we learn how to make them and have fun at the same time.
This is a great project to do with kids. Notice I said with
kids, that is because you will be using a hot oven
to shrink the plastic. If you have an oven with a window it's even better because your kids can watch the fun transition to shrinksville.
