Celebrating Shark Week with easy DIY crafts

We hope you have a fin-tastic Friday! Celebrate Shark Week with these fun DIY crafts that are perfect for the kids to do at home.


Gray cardstock or construction paper (OR YOUR CHOICE OF COLOR)



Tacky glue or glue stick

1. Start by cutting 3-4 strips of paper. The length of the strips depends on the size of your or your child’s head.

2. Next, tape two strips of paper together to form a headband. Tape another strip of paper and tape it inside the headband.

3. Cut two pieces of your paper/construction paper into shark fins. If you would like, you can decorate the sharks fins with glitter or paint.

4. Fold the bottom of the shark fin facing inward then glue together.

5. Glue the two fins together. There will be a gap near the bottom, but that’s fine.

6. Finally, glue or tape the fin to the top strip of the headband. Your shark fin hat is ready to show off!
