Kids are just totally fascinated with sharks. (I can’t lie. Many of us adults are too.)
They’re incredible sea creatures and they’re near the top of the food chain, so they’re basically the bosses of the ocean. Unless an orca whale comes along, that is.
Every year, Shark Week is a big event for lots of kids and that’s why I wanted to share some fun and easy shark crafts for kids that will be a great way to spend the week learning about all things shark!
Take a look at the 20 different shark activities for kids listed below to find some science fun to share this summer!
