1. Shark Party Decorations

Whether you’re hosting a viewing party for shark week, a shark themed birthday bash for your little man, or an ocean themed baby shower… you definitely need to print these easy shark templates to help decorate for the party. 

You can use these easy printable shark templates as stencils for decorating the cake, tabletop decorations, or hang from streamers or ribbon for an extra special garland.

Little boys will especially enjoy these scary sharks attached to sticks and used as fun selfie props! What’s more fun than scaring Grandma with a fake shark at your birthday party?!

2. Shark Story Time Craft

If your little ones love the ocean or the beach, you might want to consider an ocean themed story for bedtime or just some extra afternoon fun. 

Add a hands on element by crafting your very own shark character together after story time. Some of our favorite stories from the deep have fun shark characters. Our absolute favorite shark tales come from Bruce Hale’s Clark the Shark series. 

3. Shark Song & Dance

My kids love dance parties! We have a dance party when we need to blow off steam, before bedtime, and when they get the wiggles.

Sometimes, we dance like animals. To do this, you just take turns dancing around the room like a certain animal.

For a shark themed dance party, you and your little ones can wiggle like sharks. Don’t forget to take your newly created paper shark buddies for a spin on the dance floor! Just print, cut out, decorate, and take them dancing.

Here are some fun shark themed songs and dances to try with your little fishes:

Baby Shark from Pinkfong. You can’t skip this song! It’s so funny and cute!

Shark Finger Family from Shark Academy. The finger family song is a great way to help children practice hand eye coordination in a fun and easy way.

The Shark Song from the Ooey Gooey Lady. My kids laugh hysterically over this song! 

5. Father’s Day Fun

Don’t forget about Father’s Day! Kids can have a blast crafting a special “Daddy Shark” card for their father with these easy printable shark templates.

Be sure to provide lots of crafty materials for some unique cards filled with love. Why not try sequins, glitter, puffy paint, or scented markers?

In the end, have your little one write his or her own name for Daddy as an extra special touch.

1. This fun ocean craft is so easy to do! Simply print on the colored paper as instructed in the shark template.

2. Then cut all of the pieces out and glue them together. 

3. Finally, to give your shark a little extra life and shine, add small slivers of white paper to his fins and tail.

Now he is all complete! 

If you are short on colored paper or just want to extend the fun with your little ones, color the shark template first before cutting out the shapes. When he is all decked out, then cut them out and glue them together as instructed before.

  1. These look like great fun! We are doing a beach unit via distant learning and these are perfect to send home.

    I can’t find where to download the shark–I found the links on the other pages, just not the shark page.
    Thank!
