1st Grade Shrinky Dinks

For their auction project, the first graders drew fish on Shrinky Dinks. This magic plastic shrinks when heated in the oven.  They drew their fish in colored pencil on this plastic before we shrank it.  We looked at Fish Eyes by Lois Ehlert for inspiration.  Our goal was to make fish of all shapes and sizes with lots of bright colors. Starting as a 8×10 in. sheet, each Shrinky Dink melts down to a slightly thicker 3×4 in. finished product without altering the image at all.
