    Makit & Bakit Suncatchers

    Anyone else remember these?

    The commercial jingle started running through my head tonight. The stuff that pops into your mind when you have insomnia. I didn't have the little toy oven but I do remember baking these on tin foil and a baking sheet. I'm positive had a unicorn and I may have had some of the Strawberry Shortcake ones too.

    You are a bold and courageous person, afraid of nothing. High on a hill top near your home, there stands a dilapidated old mansion. Some say the place is haunted, but you don't believe in such myths. One dark and stormy night, a light appears in the topmost window in the tower of the old house. You decide to investigate... and you never return...

    Never seen the oven and stuff.
    But I do remember making some of those when I was little.
    Put the little pieces of plastic in the metal outline on a cookie sheet, then bake it in the oven.

    ^That was my experience, I loved those when I was a kid. I had several.

    One Christmas, I received a boxed set of (I think) twelve small ornaments to bake. We put them up for years afterwards for the holiday, hanging from our hallway chandelier.

    Awesome! I was beginning to think no one else remembered these.

    Seems like my sister had some of those. I remember doing the same thing for Shrinky Dinks as well.

    The newer Creepy Crawler oven looks like that. I used to have one in my after school group.

    My sister and I did one of the new ones today. Not as easy as I remembered. Took forever to fully bake it too.

    All those craft sets were big in the 70's...You had a set to make drinking glasses out of old glass bottles...One to make jewelry...the moccasin stuff...rock tumbler...there was even a set to make shrunken heads or something using apples...Vincent Price endorsed it, or his photo was on the box anyway...they don't make as many of those sets today because so many kids just care about video games and electronics...It's sad really...
