Does anyone else have a child who is absolutely fascinated by sharks?
Our oldest son is obsessed with them.
We’ve seen so many documentaries about sharks, read so many books about sharks, and bought so many shark “tooth” necklaces for him over the years that I’ve lost count.
He wants us to let him watch Jaws, but that’s not happening any time soon.
While I don’t share the level of enthusiasm for sharks that he has, I do think they’re absolutely incredible. And lots of kids love them.
Which is why I wanted to share these printable counting to ten puzzles that have a fun shark theme!
