Today i did shrinky-dinks and crystals. With the shrinky-dinks we cut a bottom part of a plastic container off and put 2014 and designs on it. We gave it to people to put it in the ovens until it was shrunk. With the crystals we made a 6 sided star with 1 pipe cleaner. I tied a string on it and got a cup with a mark at a certain point. We put the 6 sided star in there and if it was not touching the bottom and under the mark.Then we took it out and filled the cup with very hot water to the mark. Next we put the 6 sided star then took it out and set it on a napkin. We added borax to the water we stirred it. Then we put the 6 sided star in and put it on a napkin and set it on a table. After a day, we took them and they were 6 sided crystals.
