Shrinky Dinks

June LOVES Shrinky Dinks! This was a fun project we did making a dress up doll and fun outfits to play with.

First you find an image and trace it onto the shrinky dink paper. It is transparent and perfect for tracing. You can use markers, pencils, or paint pens. We used all of them.

Then color the outfits

Then preheat oven to 325 and place shrinky dinks on a paper bag. It only takes about a minute to shrink.

I then applied tiny pieces of velcro to the back of each outfit and the front of Junie!

  1. I loved shrinky dinks as a kid. That picture with her nose smooshed up to the oven is classic! It is so exciting to watch. I love this with the doll of herself version that she can dress.
