Natlalie and I did some shrinky-dinks recently and they are still just as totally cool as I remember! The good thing about the shrinky-dinks of today is the smell....there is NONE! My husband will say that it is because the ones today aren't toxic! Where is the fun in that? I also don't remember the old ones shrinking so quickly. Natalie was watching (as you can see) and it only took about 3 minutes for them to be done. I am totally going to get some more into my "winter craft stash!
