Playdate | Poly Shrink and Kinetic Sand

Today the kids worked with poly shrink sheets! Before today, I didn’t know such things existed (lol, mountain tortoise).  OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAPoly Shrink is a flexible, versatile plastic that shrinks to half its original size when baked in a toaster. Deborah drew some Hello Kitty images on the poly shrink sheets and had the girls to colour them before sending them to the toaster.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAUnfortunately, the colour didn’t stay in the plastic sheet. Perhaps we used the wrong type of marker.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAfter their craft work, the kids played with kinetic sand (awesome invention). It sticks together, fun to play with, and easy to keep.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASonia was so afraid of sand some few days ago when we brought her to the park but she wasn’t afraid of these kinetic sand. Guess she thought they were like PalyDoh.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThanks for the fun-filled day!
