This is SUPER easy and fun!

- Find a plastic container that is plastic #6. Some typical containers like this are plastic cups and the clear take-out containers. Just look for the triangle with a 6 in the middle. This is important because other plastics could be too thing and burn in the oven.

- Cut out your shape and decorate with permanent markers.

- Pre-heat the oven to 350.

- Wrap a cookie sheet in aluminum foil (shiny side up) & bake them for 2-3 mins. *its best to stand there and monitor through the window. Once it's done wriggling around they are done*

Use a hole punch to put a hole in it before baking to make charms. You can even wrap them around a Crayola marker while they are still hot to make rings.

The possibilities are endless and it's free!
