DIY Guitar Picks for Dad

My hubby is so hard to buy gifts for.  He generally doesn't like "stuff" which makes it especially hard!  He does like music though, so I thought a guitar pick might be simple gift that he'd like and the  kids would LOVE to make as well!  

Want to learn the secret behind how I made them?
They are just made of Shrinky Dinks!!  I roughly cut out the shape of the guitar pick, just a bit larger.  I assumed that they'd shrink to about 25% of the original size, but I think they ended up shrinking a little bit less.  So keep that in mind!  I've now read that they shrink to somewhere between 25% to 50% of their original size.

Once I cut the picks out, I let the kids draw on them with sharpies.  

 So much fun!
 Then it was time to put them into the oven and watch the magic happen!
 They ended up being a bit thicker than a normal pick, and more rough too.  But they work...and the kids were so excited to make them!

I hope you all had a wonderful Father's Day!
