Shrinky Dinks!

Shrinky Dinks are still one of my favorite crafts to do with the 6-10 year olds. We have made many things especially jewelry and key chains. Last week was different. My buddy Raina sat down and said, "I want to make a turtle". We talked about how she might draw a turtle and different design choices and then she clarified. "I want to make a turtle that stands up". (GULP!) I thought to myself. Hmmm...why couldn't we make a turtle that stands up? TOgether we spent the class testing shrink sizes, making slots and visualizing the outcome. It was a BLAST and the outcome turned out pretty stinking cute!

Great job RAINA!!

Or pretty shrinking cute :) So Raina has named her turtle Kellie, after you, her teacher. Thanks for the wonderful experience you have given her!
