DLTK's Crafts for Kids
Weather Shrinky Dinks
Weather Shrinky Dinks

Most of the time, the crafts on the site don't require much in the way of store bought materials.  But Lisa Ann asked whether I knew where she might find printable Shrinky Dink patterns.  I couldn't find anything on the internet so decided to put some together for her.

If you ever want to make your own, six images per page works out to be about the right size for necklaces or keychains.  The images shrink to 1/3 of their original size.

Notes:  You can buy all sorts of odd things like special shrinky dink markers and a special oven (that looks a bit like an easy bake oven).  But I find pencil crayons, a Aluminum foil pie plate and my oven work just fine.  Please don't use water soluble markers or wax crayons to color the shrinky dinks ...  They don't work.  Regular school pencil crayons do work just fine.

Note from a viewer:
"Another thing that works great for the Shrinky Dinks instead of the oven is a craft heat gun.  I've used that and it works really good!"
Thanks for the tip Deb!
