Don’t forget to save your takeout containers 😉 – Montessori Activities
Don’t forget to save your takeout containers 😉. How cute are these keepsakes? We made them as a Fathers Day gift 🤫. Use the smooth part of the container to make shrink art! The plastic compresses down while keeping the shape and it becomes hard plastic 🤩. For best results, use plastic number 6 (there should be a little 6 indented into the plastic).
For these hand and foot prints, paint your little ones hands and feet using acrylic paint. Stamp the plastic with it and wait for it to dry. Once dry, cut out the excess plastic and use a hole puncher to make a hole. Make it a little bigger than one hole size otherwise when it shrinks, it will be too small 🤪. Place them on an over safe tray over parchment paper and bake at 300° F until it shrinks. Should be less than 3 minutes. The cutest results, right? 😍
