Shark Arts and Crafts for Preschoolers and Above

While preschoolers are definitely not ready for the scariness of sharks, they’ve been exposed to sharks since Nemo swam across the ocean. Since you won’t necessarily be sitting down and watching Jaws or Shark Week with them, it’s a good idea to introduce shark activities in other ways. Scroll down to see our list of favorite shark books that will help ease kids into the shark frenzy.

And, of course, who could forget the infamous Baby Shark song? *Warning: Once you get it in your head, you’re likely to be singing it for days to come. We apologize in advance.”



If shark arts and crafts are still something your little one wants to tackle, here are some of our favorite shark arts and crafts around. Enjoy!
