Shrinkie Dink Fun




I remember Shrinkie Dinks from the 70's - little pieces of plastic from your cereal that you coloured and shrunk in the oven. I still have a K-9 from Doctor Who and The space ship from The Black Hole movie somewhere. They were fun and made great beads.

So I thought I would play with the more modern Shrink Film to print out some of my Paper Dolls and check them out in miniature. The images were easy enough to copy on and to cut to shape, but the ink can get a little sticky, so the idea probably needs some further play. But who knows!

Oh the memories - I had forgotten all about Shrinkie Dinks. At least our kids back in the Seventies used to eat their cereal with unnatural enthusiasm, so I guess I'm grateful for that. But yours are so much better!
