MaxiMad was complaining that all the school book bags look the same and it is difficult to pick his out, so I decided we should make some shrinky dink name tags. I went to our local craft store and bought a few A4 sheets and cut them into shapes. I then wrote the boys names on the plastic and then gave them the pens to make some patterns on them.
I then use a punch to cut a hole in them (ours was star shaped) and we popped them in the oven and watched. Before our very eyes they transformed.
A couple of ribbons later and they became name badges for bags and zip pullers for coats. We even made a couple of autumn leaves.
A really easy and simple craft for children, we are thinking of making some for our nieces for Christmas and doing some holly shapes for Christmas tree decorations.
