    This ‘Shrinky Dinks Refill Kit’ might as well be named ‘Make your own Shrinky Dinks’! Basically, it contains 6 sheets of “magic” shrinky dink paper, which are completely blank. You get to create your own designs and make your own shapes. It’s your choice! My kids simply loved watching their drawings bake in our toaster oven – and SHRINK to 1/4 of the original size!
    A few tips:
    1. For color, you will need to use colored pencils only – not crayons or markers.
    2. To create a dark, black outline, a felt-tipped ink pen is the best option.
    3. Also, make sure to apply your ink and colored pencil to the rough, matte side of the paper, not the shiny, smooth side.
    4. When it comes time to bake them, put the smooth, shiny side DOWN, and let the colored side face UP. As they heat up, they begin to wrinkle and move… but not to worry! They will flatten out once they shrink evenly.
    *Note* It is importiant to pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees BEFORE you place them inside.

    As a child, “Shrinky Dinks” were amazing… I remember coloring the pre-drawn pictures and then cooking them up – to shrink them down. This set is even better, because you get to create your own designs and cut them out into different sizes. I have seen similar “Make your own Shrinky Dinks” or “Refill” kits – anywhere from $10 to $20 per set. This pack offers the same, at half the price! Great fun for boys OR girls (just keep in mind that they DO require the use of an oven, and your art will shrink down to 1/4 of the original size – so they’re not good for kids who still put things in their mouths!) In this digital age where every toy has a wire, or requires batteries… it was nice to sit down with my kids and create little pieces of art. They each got to come up with their own designs (which was great for my 12 year old – who is “too cool” for coloring in little pictures – that is, unless he drew them himself!) Our self-made Shrinky Dinks are now serving as key chains, but better yet… they serve as little reminders that sometimes spending family time together is better than any expensive video game… even if only for one afternoon!
