What It IsSince the '70s, kids have been shrinking special paper in the oven to form tons of fun items. Shrinky Dinks combines the open-ended fun of creativity with the "magic" of the shrinking process to create a full, engaging experience. This timeless fun continues through Creativity for Kids' Shrinky Dinks kits. Kids will love coloring in the designs with colored pencils, then baking the charms and watching them shrink. There are a variety of sets to choose from:
Say "I love you" with the Shrinky Dinks I Love You Tree. This 11-inch tall white and pink tree makes an adorable decoration. Make a heart, flower, cupcake, teddy bear, and other sweet charms using Shrinky Dinks film. Add a hole with the mini hole punch, then bake the charms. Use pink ribbon and hooks to hang the charms on the tree.
For another way to express love throughout the year, make sweet cards embellished with Shrinky Dinks charms. Shrinky Dinks I Heart You Cards contains 12 cards to decorate. The cards come in three colors-pink, purple, and blue-with openings on the front to show the charms.
Make an adorable Easter tree with the Shrinky Dinks Easter Fun kit. Color in Easter-themed charms, such as chicks, bunnies, eggs, and baskets. Once the charms are baked and shrunk, use green ribbon and hooks to hang the charms on the 11-inch tall white and green tree.
These kits are great for families to make together, but they can also be used for group activities at parties or playdates.
