Easy to make DIY Charms (aka Shrinky Dinks!) Curious george style… the process is the same, just insert your OWN favorite character, emoji, or drawing! Such a fun kids craft!
We tried something new this weekend and made Curious George charms with “magic shrinking paper” as my 3-year old called it, aka shrinky dinks!
Curious George DIY SHRINKY DINK Charms
Inspired by George’s red shirt, The Man With The Yellow Hat’s hat and George’s brown fur, this Curious George we made a red, yellow and brown bracelet and paired it with a cute picture of George wearing said hat!
