Our Ghana Day Swap was a really neat idea that our other leader created with the girls. We used shrinky dink paper to draw maps of Ghana in which the girls colored, using the colors of Ghana’s flag. For those of you who are as clueless as I was, shrinky dink paper is a paper you can buy at Hobby Lobby or Amazon which allows the user to color on the paper, bake it and it shrinks and hardens.
One of our girls coloring the shrinky dink paper with colored pencils.
Once the coloring part was complete, the girls cut each map out and put a nice hole punch on the edge.
Finally, they were cut around the edges and baked in the oven. We followed the directions on the package. Once removed and cooled, we inserted key rings into the holes. The result – a cool key chain Ghana map!
The final product!
