Unlike another reviewer, I did not have problems with shrinking the plastic from this kit or any other of the kits I've owned, even after forgetting a trayfull of shrinkydinks and leaving them in the oven way too long. My only shrinky dink caveats are to use the plainest, thinest, cheapest pan you've got. Those fancy stoneware pans might cook great brownies but they take forever to heat up so aren't such a good S-D choice. And I've found that it's best to let the S-Ds cool on their pan a bit before taking them out. They're just a smidge flexible straight from the oven but cool and harden quickly so if you pull it off your pan right away you'll warp it and then it will harden like that.
Shrinky-Dinks are designs cut out from a special plastic that shrinks in the oven, going from about 2-3 inches to about a half-inch. They're tiny!
Lots of different designs which you color yourself with the included colored pencils. Side note - my little one scribbled all over one design all in one color, and I went back over it with some other colors, and it actually kind of worked - the medium is somewhat forgiving.
Instructions were very clear, with plenty of pictures and large print making them easy even for a kid to read and understand.
The finished tree, I'll admit, doesn't look as nice as the one on the box, as it isn't all that easy to situate the pipe cleaners in perfect randomization. That said, it's adorable! It's a foot tall, and it's got all those cute little ornaments on it. Maybe the best part of it is realizing that with the sturdy base, you can use any pipe cleaners and beads you want to make a different little tree. Still, the included star beads and pre-cut stems were great.
It comes with colored pencils, a little hole punch, and hangers. In cheaper kits, you'd expect to see maybe bits of string to tie into hangers yourself; this one has little metal rings you bend open and closed, which is easier than tying off a string while holding the ornament in place. I'd also expect a cheap kit to have suggestions on how to punch the hole, rather than a tool to do it with. Nice touch!
The punch is far more durable than you'd think. I had zero problems using it. It's even got a little container for the punched bits so they don't make a mess. Also, the inclusion of the little hanger rings is inspired.Read more ›
We liked this project so much that I am going to order the valentine's day tree for my daughter and her friends to do at her birthday sleepover. I highly recommend.
