Shark Craft for Kids:
This ocean craft for kids is so simple to make and is great for kids of all ages. Plus, it only requires a few supplies to make so you probably already have everything you need on hand for the activity.
Getting Ready To Make The Shark Craft for Kids:
- Shark Template
- Blue, Gray, and White Construction Paper
- Yellow, Red, and Green Tissue Paper
- Googly Eyes
- Black Marker
To get this craft ready for your kids to create, click on the link above to download and print the shark template.
You may want to print the template on white card stock, because the thicker paper will make it sturdier and easier for your kids to trace.
How To Make The Shark Craft for Kids:
To begin making this ocean craft, your kids will first cut out the template of the shark. (They will need to cut out the mouth from the shark’s body to create a mouth and body template.)
Next, your children will trace the shark’s body onto gray construction paper and cut it out. Then, your kids will trace the shark’s mouth onto construction paper and cut it out.
After cutting the mouth out, your kids will glue it onto the shark. Next, they will use a black marker to outline the shark and add detail. Then, your children will glue the googly eyes onto the shark.
Next, your kids will use yellow tissue paper to glue a sandy bottom onto blue cardstock. Then, they will twist green and red tissue paper and glue it behind the yellow tissue paper.
Finally, your children will glue the shark and shells onto the blue cardstock to complete their shark craft.
With a black marker, you can draw bubbles coming out of the shark’s mouth. Then, hang your sharks up on display for everyone to see!
This Shark Craft for Kids is easy to make with the free printable template and fun for all ages to create for shark week!
Can I Use Other Supplies To Make This Craft?
If you don’t have everything on hand, you can substitute the supplies for other craft materials. Instead of googly eyes, you can create the shark’s eyes out of black and white construction paper.
You can also make the sand, seaweed, and shells out of yellow, green, and brown construction paper.
