Paper Bag Shark Craft

I’ve shared a few paper bag crafts for kids recently and today is the turn of this fun paper bag shark. I’m sure I normally introduce most crafts here as cute or sweet but that doesn’t really seem that appropriate this time! This shark is super easy to make and it’s a great way to practice scissor skills too. Not cute, but certainly a lot of fun!

Lets make it

To make your paper bag shark the first thing that you need to do is to cut a circle out of the black and white card for the mouth, to get a good match for these put one bit of card on top of the other when you cut them out so they are the same size. From the white bit of card cut out spikey sharp teeth, these will now fit perfectly onto your black sharks mouth so glue them on!

Next cut your sharks fins and stick those on to the back of your paper bag. Finally all you need to do is draw on your sharks eyes, you could also use googly eyes for this but shockingly we had actually run out so I used this pen instead which is pretty much my go to for everything in life these days!
