A summer heads our way, it is time for some fabulous shark crafts for preschoolers. These would make great additions to any Shark Week lesson plans . I was talking to a local mum about all the DIY Mermaid Crafts Pip Squeak and I were making and she asked “do you have any shark crafts? my 5yrs old would LOVE to do some”. I had to admit that I didn’t have many Shark Crafts at all (I do have some.. see below!). I promised her to bring together a collection of the best Shark Crafts for Kids for her and boy!!!! Sharks make a great Crafts for Boys theme.. however there are plenty of girls who will love this too!
Now this is officially titled Shark Craft Ideas for Preschool.. but there are is a wider mix of ideas.. Especially since you can do many projects collaboratively and you may also want to do these as Shark Crafts for First Grade (KS1) and up. Where possible I have included Shark Craft Templates or Shark Craft Printable Ideas (you know how we love a Free Printable!) as I know many of you appreciate these! How we love some Preschool Shark Activities!! Hope you love this collection of easy shark crafts!!
Rest assured that all the shark crafts today are non scary shark crafts for kids to make and enjoy!
