Pasta Necklaces

Today the students finished all of their pasta shrinky dink necklaces. They loved how the shrinky dinks shrunk. Today we took the pasta that we died the other day and put it on a piece of cotton yarn holding our shrinky dinks. The finished necklaces turned out awesome!

To make the shrinky dink pendants, I took a 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of shrinky dink paper and cut it in half. Using previously drawn insect drawings, the students traced the drawing onto their shrinky dink paper and colored it in with permanent markers. Then, I took them home and shrunk them in my oven.

Let me know what you think...
