Shrink Art, often referred to as “shrinkies,” or “shrinky dinks,” are wonderful and charming miniature works of art created on shrinkable plastic. The little finished products can be used for jewelry, keychains and small charms.
They are very inexpensive to make and are enjoyed by children of all ages who enjoy drawing and working on small scale projects. Lillie and Victoria, both 7 years old here, developed a streetfair business called “Happy Charms” where they sold their original shrink art designs for fun and profit.
