Shrinky Dinks!

We completed our third full week of school today.  And we celebrated with Shrinky Dinks! I found this kit at a toy store a couple of weeks ago.  I put it up in anticipation of a particularly stir crazy day.  And with the extremely hot weather lately, it didn't take long!
After work was done for the day, I got them out.  The entire family gathered round the table.
Ruby was entertained watching Katie nearby.

i had to zoom on that one!

Tracing and coloring...

 Then cut....

and bake!

 (purple oven??)

We have many ideas for using the rest of the shrinky paper. It was a great way to kill some time indoors!

Don't know how I missed this post... Shrinky dinks are fun stuff. We did those with Ellen last year (only with some homemade something she had) and the boys loved it. Good plan for these insanely hot days! Remind me again why I was complaining about moving to Alaska?
Ruby looks like she fits in with the school day quite nicely. All smiles while she "helps" the siblings, huh? Good stuff!
