Shark Week Jello Treats
Shark week is a fun time to learn about these marvelous creatures that rule the oceans. I whipped up some shark week jello treats that are super cute and yummy too. They are a great little dessert to serve while working through the activities in my Shark Activity Pack.
To make the jello treats, you only need two ingredients, blue jello and whipped cream. Make the jello in a square dish and when it is set, cut it into cubes.
Fill a clear cup up with jello leaving an inch for the whipped cream. Add a shark decoration or lollipop. I got these lollipops on Amazon for super cheap.
Shark Week Activity Pack
Download and print this fun activity pack. It is filled with information, games and fun. Some of it is geared towards little kids and other parts for older kids. I created it with a family doing it together in mind and wanted to have something for everyone.
If you want to print the mini shark book to add to goody bags or at a place setting, it is super cute too! Just print page one on the back page two and cut it down the middle then fold and staple.
- Sharks live in every ocean on Earth!
- Some sharks have been around for over 450 million years.
- Many sharks have ears INSIDE their heads.
- Also, large sharks live longer than small sharks.

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.

- 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.

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

Make a Shark Game
This game is complete with handmade beanbags AND a free printable scoring sheet.
I designed this die for Ellison Education and Sizzix. I love it because the mouth comes out. Use a shark die to cut out the shape from a squishie block and then paint it into a shark.
YAY for SHARKS!
