We have entertained HUNDREDS of children with our Shrink Art, ‘shrinkies’  or Shrinky Dinks as they are also known. It is a fantastic arty activity for kids.  Kids simply love it! (It’s like the 70’s are back – and we are excited!!)

What is Shrink Art?

Shrink Art, ‘shrinkies’  or Shrinky Dinks are  FUN arty activity for kids.  They get to draw their own unique picture on a special shrink art plastic sheet and watch it magically shrink in size in the oven!  The finished product is a compact piece of art. How cool is that!  Our shrink art sheets are A5 size 21cm x 15cm.  These plain (no pre printed art) shrinkies come in packs of 20 or save with a pack of 100 sheets.

Shrinkies Shrinky Dinks can be used to make a variety of fun shapes and drawings including:

  • Patterns, animals, faces
  • Kids names, letters, numbers
  • Favourite characters and symbols
  • Anything you can draw, trace or copy!

How to make a Shrinky Dink

1. Draw an awesome picture with pencils, permanent markers or metallic markers

2. Cut out the shape with scissors, keeping edges rounded – no sharp pokey bits. Remember to punch a hole if you plan to make a keyring or want to tie the shrinkie to something

3. Mum or Dad place the shrinkie in the oven/toaster oven for 30 – 40 seconds

4. Watch it shrink! IT IS AMAZING 🙂

The finished shrinkie will be 40% of the original size and 9 times the thickness.
