My kids love shark week every summer. On top of watching some of the shark programs on television we also love making a new shark craft every year.
Last year our newspaper shark was a big hit. This year we’re going simple again with this cute paper shark craft.
Get ready for some shark week fun because all you need to make this simple shark craft is colored cardstock, googly eyes and a chalk marker.
