Shark Summer Craft for Kids
We are continuing our week of celebrating and learning about sharks with what else but a super fun shark craft for kids! Whether you prefer baby sharks, mommy sharks or daddy sharks – this cute craft can be tailored to be a big or small swimmer!
Here’s what we created using these supplies but remember, this is your shark – build it any way you like!
You will need:
- Colored Craft Paper
- Elmer’s Glue
- Clothespins or Clothes Pegs
- Googly Eyes
- Create Your Shark Shape: Make a stencil of the size of shark you want (Baby shark? Mama shark? Daddy shark?) or if you feel confident, draw out your shark shape free hand!
- Trace Your Stencil on Paper: Using whatever color of craft or construction paper you prefer trace out your shark shape.
- Cut Out the Body: Cut out your shark but leave the inside of the mouth.
- Make the Mouth: Draw a horizontal line through the mouth to about 2 inches from the tail. This will become the jaw. Cut straight through the line.
- Glue the Body to Pin: Using strong craft glue, glue the pinchers onto your shark mouth from the reverse side! (see video)
- Add Some Eyes: Give your shark a steely gaze with some googly eyes. You can even add some teeth in!
Don’t forget to send us pictures of your masterpiece for the chance to be featured on our Instagram page. We can’t wait to see all your creations!
