One of my favorite events of the year is Shark Week. I find many of the shows fascinating, funny, and sometimes weird. Honestly, every year it does get a bit weirder as they bring in different comedians, actors, or other famous people to go swimming with sharks. or teach people not to swim with sharks. I am excited for this year because they have announced that the Impractical Jokers will be taking over Discovery Channel for 2022 Shark Week. Yup! Brian Quinn, James Murray, and Sal Vulcano will be having a fin-tastic time with a slightly educational special!
Shark week will start July 24 and go through July 31 and feature several new episodes, equipment and new science to learn the ways of the shark. If we use last year as an indication of what will be, we can expect over 30 new episodes filled with wonderful sharks.
To celebrate Shark Week, I usually make some printables or crafts featuring sharks. I have created printable cupcake wrappers and toppers, a printable Shark Week Coloring Page, a Jaw-some cupcake recipe, Sharknado printables, and more. This year I am bring out an adorable Cubeecraft paper craft of my favorite type of shark, the Great White.
Like all pf the cubeecrafts that I have created, the shark cubeecraft requires no glue or tape. Simply slice the little lines in each tab and slide the locking tab inside. The fins, tail, and dorsal fin, all have interlocking tabs to keep them in place to make the shark look like he is on the hunt for something yummy. What’s great about these, is they work well as little treat boxes because they are hollow! these look great on a table and can be filled with treats for the kids to take home and enjoy. Of course, the kids may want to create their own cubee shark. Follow the instructions below to make your very own cubeecraft shark.
NOTE All cutting should be done by an adult.
- Cut out each item along the outer black lines.
- Cut along the white on each tab using the x-acto knife
- Cut along each red line using the x-acto knife
- Fold along each inner solid black line and slide each tab into the slots created with an x-acto knife to form a cube of the body
- Fold the fins in half so that color sides are facing out. Place each one through the red lines on either side of the shark.
- Fold the Tail in half so that color sides are facing out. Slid it into the red line in the back.
- Fold the dorsal fin in half so that color sides are facing out and slide through the red line at the top.
- Your shark is now done
