Make Shrinky Dink Plastic Rings

shrink plastic ring
Love these! These would be great to make for loot bags or for kids to make at birthday party. Also terrific if you are looking for crafts to do over the summer or summer camp crafts.
You could also have a lot of fun at the Holidays and make shrink plastic Halloween rings and ones for Christmas.

These are a good craft for boys – you can get lots of stamps now with boy theme like spider web or bugs. This would also be a good craft for kids to do for a gift- would make a nice mother’s day gift (for grandmas too) or teachers gift.

The full tutorial for making these nice shrink plastic rings is on the blog Planet June.

Radio Disney Concert Tour in Wildwood

The Radio Disney Summer Concert Series finale is scheduled for 2 pm Saturday, July 26, 2008 and is just one of many exciting upcoming Wildwood events taking place this summer!

Wildwoods Convention Center

The Oceanfront Arena with Raven-Symone from Disney Channel’s “That’s so Raven” and the currently showing Walt Disney movie, “College Road Trip” starring Martin Lawrence and Raven-Symone. The July 26th concert will also feature Mitchell Musso from the “Hannah Montana Show”. maybe I am showing my age- but does anyone remember Rudy on The Cosby Show? Well, she is all grown up and worth as zillion dollars as one of the Cheetah Girls and from her hit TV show. I tried to watch the Cosby Show with my daughter a few months ago and was shocked at how dated it was. I remember it being so cutting edge and funny! It didn’t hold up that well :(

I have two “tweens” and both are nuts for anything Disney channel- which we have on our satellite radio. Anything Taylor Swift, Hannah Montana or Jesse Mccartney is a hit.

Wildwood is a offering a special deal for the concert goers:

I think you could also do something nice with kids with bit of colour- use 2-3 colours and make pop-art flowers, bright fish, starts, etc. A cheap and cheerful take it home “loot” bag could be one of these decorate pots with a colorful flowering plant or bulb inside.
