There are so many different kinds of sharks and so many fun ways to learn about them too. Sharks make a great theme for parties and decorating too!

Whether is is time to celebrate Shark Week in the summer or the coldest day in the winter – it is always fun to use these amazing creatures as inspiration for DIY, crafts and celebrations. I have rounded up some of my favorite shark crafts, shark recipes and shark printables and can’t wait to share them all with you. There is something here for everyone – at home and in the classroom too.

Shark Crafts

Shark crafts are so much fun. There is something majestic and slightly dangerous feeling when making things with sharks on the brain.

Start with this super fun SHARK and CHUM game made with felt. It is an easy sew project.

Whip up a fabulous shark pillow! This is made with felt too!

Best Ways to Use Free Printables

You might have seen this list from me before but I think it is worth sharing over and over. Sometimes the people in the back need to hear things a few times, right?  There are so many great ways to use free printables.  Here are some of my favorites.

  • Print them and mail in an envelope with a stamp. Snail mail rocks.
  • Batch some up to make an activity book.  This is great for a road trip!
  • Print and use at a place setting on the table to create a conversation starter.
  • Add them to goody bags.  By the way, goody bags are not just for birthday parties.
  • Package them up with your favorite markers and crayons to give as a gift.
  • Drop a few off at the local coffee shop with fun pencils to spread some happy.
  • Cut them up to make cards, gift wrap and decorations.

BEST Tools For Working With Free Printables

These are my favorite tools and art supplies to use with free printables and why I love them too.

  1. Printer – This Laser Printer is inexpensive and works like a charm.  It even works with Alexa.  Bonus!
  2. Scissors – Lots of printables can be cut up to create decorations and cards and things like that.
  3. Markers and Crayons – All thing ooly work the best for me.  I LOVE all of their markers, pencils and crayons.
  4. Colored Pencils – For adult coloring, PRISM makes the colored pencils that I love to use most.
  5. Twine – For creating banners and garlands from printables, I love this twine best.
  6. Adhesive – Lots of printables have pieces that get cut out and put together.  This is my fave tape runner!
