Shrinky Dink- Bringing back the memories

Does anyone remember making art out of shrinky dink when you were a kid?  Well one of my close friends shared some small art she had been making from shrinky dink and it made me want to try it out as a grown adult. I also wanted to experience it with my niece (2) and nephew (9).  

I went on amazon and ordered a 10 sheet pack of the Frosted Ruff N'Ready Creative Pack by Shrinky Dink for about 6 dollars.   While my sister and her husband went on a date night I brought over the Shrinky Dink and the kids and I ended up having a blast creating little creatures, bears and ice cream. I think I had more fun then when I was a kid using it.  The best part was putting them in the oven and all of us hunkered down to peer through the glass and watch as are creations shrunk before are eyes.  We still have a few sheets left. I think I'll bring them over again around Christmas to make some decorations.
