Make a wiggly, wobbly plastic robot in just a few minutes!
Step 1: Gather Materials
- Shrinky Dink sheets (acetate sanded on one side)
- Colored Pencils
- Hole Punch
- Toaster Oven
- Paper Clips
Step 2: Cut Shrinky Dink Shapes
Cut your shrinky dink material into robot body parts; Head, Body, 2 Arms, 2 Legs. Punch holes so you can connect the body parts together later. One @ the top of the head, one @ the bottom of the head. Five in the body; 1 for the neck, 2 for the arms, 2 for the legs. One in each arm & leg. (See photo.)
Step 3: Color
Color onto the rough side with colored pencils. Place on aluminum foil- spaced out so they don't touch- & toaster oven rack.
Step 4: Bake
Bake at 350 degrees for 1-2 minutes. Watch. You will see it curl up at first- see photo above. (You spaced the out so that when they curl they don't stick onto each other) Don't worry, it will flatten out soon! Keep an eye on it.
