Growing up, I loved when my mom would get out the Shrinky Dinks, let me color them, and watch them bake down in the oven. When I saw a “Jewelry” Shrinky Dinks kit on clearance at a local bookstore, I knew it was time to introduce my daughter to the wonders of shrinking plastic.
You tell us: Have you created Shrinky Dinks either yourself as a child or with your own children or students? Was it all just for fun or did you talk to them about the science behind their art? Let us know in the comments below or share your own ideas!
