fun with plastic…

Happy Holidays! Hope all you teachers are enjoying these 2 weeks off as much as I am! 🙂 Before we left for winter break, the Intermediate kids and I experimented with Shrinky Dink, making quick ornaments to take home with them. They designed a quick image and then traced it onto the shrink film in permanent marker and colored and decorated it. After a few hiccups on my part, we managed to figure out how to bake the these ornaments successfully and the students were more than excited to quickly get their designs done to take home. This was a quick assignment, but next time, I would definitely like to try out more drawing techniques on the shrink film, like sanding textures, or using inkjet to print onto the film.
