Shrinky Dinks

Dancer got the Shrink Art Jewelry book by Klutz for her birthday. She just loves this book. She kept thanking us for buying her such a cool gift and saying how happy she was to have it. That doesn't happen too often. Most of the afternoon was spent in a flurry of tracing, coloring, cutting and then watching the little pieces shrink up in the oven. I had played with Shrinky Dinks as a kid and had forgotten how fun they are! Tonight her basketball team played during the varsity game half time at the high school and so she didn't have time to make these into earrings, necklaces etc. It almost killed her to go to bed knowing that this was all sitting waiting for her on the dining room table.
