here.) I was just planning on making their initial and let them decorate it. They decided to trace other shapes and turn it into a sort of charm necklace. I printed some simple outlined shapes that I found searching on-line. I also had some clipart from a shrink art kit we bought a while ago. The only think I had to purchase was a necklace. I got a rainbow colored satin cord necklace from Hobby Lobby for $0.99 each.
Since I was afraid this wouldn’t take the full 2 hours I allowed for I also purchased some alphabet beads and some clear beads and each girl got to make a bracelet with their name.
I think the girls had the most fun with this craft. They really got into making a bunch of charms and by the end of the craft they were using the jump rings to string them on their necklace all on their own. I also had the official shrink art oven so they were able to shrink the pieces without much help from me (although you could also shrink them in the toaster oven).
Definitely a hit with the kids!
