My Take:
We had such a great time with these. I remember Shrinky Dinks as a child so it was a lot of fun for me to tell my kids about them.  However, we didn't have them in 3D so I was even more excited to try them out myself. Of course there were several sea animals to choose from on the template, but my kids had to pick the exact same ones. Too cute.
After they each colored their animals, I cut them out so there wouldn't be any upset if someone accidentally cut off an animal part.  Then I placed them on non-stick foil in the oven. It only took about a minute before they started shrinking up, it was so cool to watch.  The kids were just marveled by it all.  So after just about 3 minutes they were all set and ready to be taken out.
We then had to place them in between some paper towels with a little pressure until they cooled.  I just put a book on top of them. They cooled pretty fast.  Of course when I went to put them together I realized that I didn't cut the stand notches quite far enough down like the template showed so they didn't go together.  I just used my metal nail file and gently rubbed inside the notch and it worked great thankfully.  So make a note to follow the cut lines exactly on the stands or they won't fit right.  So that was it pretty simple and easy to do.  They make pretty neat little stand up animals.  The kids were begging to do the other animals just as soon as these were done.  My only other suggestion is if you have more than one child you might want to photo copy the tracer sheet because there is only one and it's double sided.
