I am always looking for new craft ideas to introduce to my kids and it makes me so giddy when I find something that they enjoy. Last night that happened.
I saw a tutorial over at Vicki Brown Designs awhile back and the other day while I was at Michael's I finally picked up a pack of "Shrinky Dinks" so we could play around.
So you basically draw, color and cut your design on the Shrinky Dinks paper with permanent markers.
The you put it in the over (325 degrees) for 3 minutes.
And watch it shrink!
I should have taken a picture of my son watching the sheep shrink, he was giggling so hard, it was the cutest thing!
And then we just wrapped it in yarn, just for fun. He also made a pig, but I didn't have a chance to take pictures, he was holding it tight and even brought the pig to bed with him. ;)
