All his little friends are going to get little shrinky dink skull bracelets when they arrive for his party – thanks so much for such a great idea!

The kids and I just made some this week – even my 10 year old boy got into it!!!

Merry Christmas!!

I haven’t used shrinky dinks since I was a kid, but I might have to give them another try. I love the necklace/bracelet idea, but could also see making gift tags. Thanks for the inspiration!

I can’t believe your five year old made them. How clever is she! She’ll have a stall at the markets before her 10th birthday.

My sister and I did the “shrinky dinks” kits for Care Bears and Cabbage Patch Kids, among others. I recently bought my 4 year old daughter a kit from Amazon and I was wondering if they made “blanks” – so cool to create your own! Plus, I think I will try it out on some recycled#6 plastics first!

But, I will add, that you can use a heat gun (the kind for embossing) and not have to heat your whole oven. This method will also allow you to make rolled up plastic that can then be used as beads.

I found that you can use #6 plastic (like berry containers) and do it yourself on RECYCLED plastic. More Earth-friendly and even cheaper!

How cool is that!!! I am putting your site in my Favorites! Love the shrinky dinks. I did those with my children when they were little.

We loved watching them shrink—our little faces glued to the little oven window. Something you may have missed out on in your own childhood…but, a child gives you an excuse to be doing it again!
