Baby Shark!

What you need:

Two paper plates


Ziploc bag (if your little one can’t paint on their own)


This craft is my attempt at making baby shark from little man’s favorite song! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thankfully, it isย a simple and quick craft because little man is done with any given activity under a minute! All I had to do was put a paper plate in a ziploc bag with some blue paint and seal it really well. Little man did his thing – shaking, crumpling, squishing – and then I took the plate out and replaced it with the other one. If your child can actually paint, have them only paint half of the second plate. If your child cannot paint on their own, like my little man, you will need a white piece of paper.

Using the first plate, cut out the mouth and teeth. You will see that my teeth are rounded because he’s a baby shark! ๐Ÿ™‚ But you can make yours pointed if you want! Now, take the second paper plate and cut out the tail, two fins, and eyes. The eyes will be cut from the white part of the plate, or your piece of paper. Draw two circles on the eyes with your marker, and then tape them, along with the fins and tail, onto the first paper plate. And you’re done! Now you have your very own baby shark!
