Remember shrinky dinks? I don't think I created anything with them as a kid but I got some for "Doodle" (granddaughter) last week. They come as blank sheets of plastic so we found pictures to color for her bracelet. She likes a show called Dinosaur Train and I was able to find some clip art from the show online. I traced the pictures for her and Doodle colored them... well, I colored a few... it's so fun to color with your granddaughter. Then we popped them in the oven and we got these nifty little charms. A few jump rings and a clasp and there you have it. I think the little charm bracelet turned out so cute. What fun to have a little one so interested in creating new things. Genes... gotta love 'em!
