Creativity For Kids Review



Even though Shrinky Dinks were SUPER popular when I was a kid, I never got to experience them. I had heard of them and thought they were awesome and Even asked for one for Christmas one year. But Never got one and never played with one.
Until NOW!!!!
Creativity For Kids was very generous and sent Avery and I the Shrinky Dinks Holiday for review. This thing was AWESOME! It came with Absolutely Everything we needed except scissors
  It was very time consuming coloring them all in well enough to see and cutting them out. It did take a while! Avery got bored and wasn't coloring very well anyway, so Jon and I did the project instead. I'm 19 and he's 25, we Both had a BLAST doing this!! It really is for age 7-97, like they say! I would say a 4-5 yr old may be able to do it, but 2 1/2 Avery was too young!
From Start to finish I would say it took us about an hour. 
Avery loved watching them shrink down though, as did we.
 Pre Shrink
Post Shrink
Closer up
Seriously This project was super awesome! I will buy one of each Shrinky Dinks set and Do them so we have Decorations around the house year round!!
Here's the Finished product
Closer up

We lost 2 ornaments due to me punching the holes too close to the edge, so when I went to put the rings on them the plastic just snapped!

Price: These kits run at $16.99, which I think is amazing! You will get years of life out of this, and even if you just have it up for a year it is worth it in my opinion. I think this would be an awesome gift for the "Child Who Has Everything" Because it's fun for them to do, but also is a household decoration!

Overall: Product is AWESOME!! 5 Out Of 5! There was Really nothing I found wrong with this product!
