Kids Craft Idea - Shrinky-Dinks at Home!

Here is a simple and fast craft to do with your children this month. Its fast, simple and the best thing about it, your children get to use their art skills to come up with their own creative masterpieces.

Before they went into the oven
After they came out
The best pic I could get

All you need is:
#6 plastic (check out your recycle to see if you have any in there)
Permanent markers
Cookie sheet covered in aluminum foil
Oven mitts

All you do is draw on the plastic with the markers then cut your design out as close as possible.
Preheat oven to 350.
Place on a cookie sheet coloured side up.
Put it into the oven for about 60 seconds. It may curl up a bit but once you take it out you can flatten it out with a knife in the first 10 seconds before it cools down and becomes solid.

You could even make jewelry this way. Just make a hole in the top before you bake them! 
What are some ideas you can think of to make with this craft idea?
