Shrinky Dinks Cool Stuff Activity Set is an awesome way to spend a day indoors! Color, bake and shrink a bat, monster truck, eyeball, alien, insects and more. Shrinky Dinks sheets are made of a special thin, flexible plastic which, when heated in an oven, shrink and harden without altering their color or shape. We precut all the fun shapes in every one of our kits to make them easy to work with! Includes 21 preprinted and precut Shrinky Dinks, 8 color pencils, 8 stands, 6 pipe cleaners, 2 key chains, 6 magnets and easy instructions. Recommended for children 5 years of age and older.
For $7, kids and grown-ups will love it!

Bought for my 71/2 year old nephew as an Easter present in his basket. He had no idea what they were, so I had to explain that Shrinky Dinks were all the rage when I was his age. (Yup, feeling old!) He didn’t seem interested at first until I opened the package with him and then he was so excited when he saw he could make his own magnets and keychains! That was it – he was off running with this craft! He ripped open the pack of designs and spent several minutes going through each one and picking the 3 he wanted to color (we set a limit for that day to make them last). 10 minutes later he had his 3 designs completely colored with the pencils that came in the kit and we were ready to cook. We got a step stool out and let him sit in front of the oven with the light on to watch them SHRINK of course! He was mesmerized – the look on his face when they started to move was incredible! Follow the instructions inside the package and you’ll be fine. It will take a minute or 2 for anything to happen once you put them into the oven, then they will shrink rather quickly and probably even curl right up into a ball. Don’t panic! They are meant to do that. Don’t take them out…just let them continue to cook until they flatten themselves out. Once that happens, wait another 30-45 seconds and then take them out. We had placed them on parchment paper on the cookie sheet, so when they came out of the oven we folded the parchment over the 3 shrinky dinks and pressed firmly (with a pot holder) for 15 seconds just make sure they were 100% flat. Worked like a charm! Nephew was so excited, that he begged us to let him do another one. We caved. And he loved it! With more than 20 items to color and all the accessories to display them when they are done, this really is an excellent, family oriented craft that grown-ups and kids can participate in and enjoy! And once you master this kit, you can buy the plain refill pages of shrinky dink paper and make your own designs from scratch.

These are just plain fun. The box comes with a ton of pieces to color and a set of pencils for coloring. There is no right or wrong way to color them, it is entirely up to the child (or adult if you can convince your kids to give you any :P).

The kids absolutely loved these. These were perfect to make on a rainy day. The kids thought it was the best thing ever. Just color them in and shrink them in the oven.
Pretty cool set
Pretty cool set, good for boys. My son loved watching things shrink in the oven!! Kept him entertained on a few bad-weather days this winter.
a nice trip down memory
I thought these were a lot cooler than my son. Maybe because I played with these when I was a kid, a nice trip down memory lane
good for afternoon craft
Bought these for the kids to do for an afternoon activity during summer. They loved it. They enjoyed making the necklaces and keychain out of them
Sooo glad these are still around.
Bought for a teenager who loved it! She even started using scrap plastic to continue making more.

Fun to now be doing Shrinky Dinks with my granddaughter after having so much fun with them with my children. Good prices
My boys love these! Fun to color and then
My boys love these! Fun to color and then watch them shrink! Make sure to poke a hole in the top before you shrink them if you want to make a necklace or hang them on the tree.
