How to make a Shrinky Dinks keyring using your child's drawings
- Draw a picture onto white shrink plastic. Harry drew portraits of each member of the family. I labelled each person. As these are some of Harry's first 'real' drawings these keyring's will make memorable keepsakes.
- Cut out the images and use a hole punch to make hole at the top of your child's drawing.
- Bake your child drawing by following the instructions on your packet of white shrink plastic. Its so much fun to see the pictures shrink!
- Add a keychain and your Shrinky Dinks keyring is complete.
These personalised keychains would be perfect for your child to make and give out as gifts for Mothers Day, Fathers Day, Christmas or a Birthday. I will treasure mine as its one of the first pictures that Harry drew of me.
