My Boys Love Sharks and I love the Ocean! Your kids will have fun pretending to chase the little fish and catch him in their shark’s mouth!
- Wooden clothespin
- Light blue (or gray), white and orange card stock
- Googly eye
- Shark pattern (download & print here: clothespin-shark-pattern)
- Tools: scissors, glue stick, hot glue gun, gray marker
- Use the shark pattern to cut the top half and the bottom fin from blue paper, and the bottom half of the shark from white paper.
- Cut the fish from orange paper. Cut the toothpick to about 1-inch in length. Hot glue the toothpick to the back of the orange fish. Use glue stick to attach the blue fin to the white body.
- Hot glue the bottom of the toothpick to the back of the white body, about half an inch from the end of the mouth.
- Glue the shark body pieces to the clothespin, starting at the spring leaving the handle end exposed.
- Use a gray marker to draw on the gills. Glue on the googly eye.
- You will need to bend the white part of the shark a little so that when you open and close the mouth, the small fish doesn’t hit the top of the shark.
