Where have Shrinky Dinks gone on the craft scene? Perhaps parents thought it better not to encourage kids to play with the oven. But watching the scraps of plastic shrivel to a quarter of it’s size was a vital part of my childhood. Celebrate the year of the dog at Ben Franklin’s Keiki Saturday craft workshops. For $5 kids can make a shrink art dog keychain Jan. 27 10 a.m. to noon.
