Christmas Fun - Shrinky Dinks

This is the first time B and K have experienced the wonder of watching those little pieces of plastic, shrivel, curl up and shrink in the oven.

Only to flatten back out again, with colours that are so superbly intense and shiny.

These were a kit and a simple colouring and cutting activity, but the joy of seeing them in the oven was worth it. We hole punched them all before they went into the oven and would look great on a mini tree or with some beads on a christmas bracelet. I don't think either of them have decided what they will do with them yet.
