16 Crafts, Activities & Printables for Shark Week!

I absolutely get excited every year for Shark Week. It is thrilling to watch the videos of all the sharks, learn facts about some of the coolest underwater creatures, and of course, sneak in some great Shark films like Jaws and Sharknado! This year Shark Week starts Sunday July 5th and I just can’t wait!

Getting the kids involved in something so cool is also fun. They get mesmerized by the animals in the deep as they learn about how sharks feed, move, and which sharks are actually dangerous. Include these 16 crafts to help with the learning. Be careful though, you may end up with a household of Shark Week freaks. I should know…I have one.
