Shark Paper Plate Craft

This shark craft was created by the Unschooling Mom and her two sons D and E. We appreciate the anonymity as a mother with children.  This is one of the cutest crafts I’ve seen so far.  My little boy loves sharks – his shark love began when his great aunt sent him a shark towel for his first birthday. We play “sharky” all the time before bathtime. Yes, I do wear the towel on my head and pretend I am a shark swimming around in our house.

This craft is ideal for this type of Little Crafter
Preschooler through 8 years old

What you’ll need

  • Paper plate
  • Blue construction paper
  • Pencil or blue crayon
  • Scissors
  • Craft glue
  • Googly eyes (2)
  • Red crayon


How-to make this craft

  1. Fringe or cut triangles from the rim of the paper plate. Fold the paper plate in half (makes the jaw) and fold down the triangles (to make the teeth).
  2. Draw out the body of the shark (a simple fish outline with a shark fin at the top of the head) on the blue construction paper with a pencil or blue crayon then cut out the body of the shark.
  3. Make a tongue in the center of the jaw with your red crayon.
  4. Place the jaw (paper plate) on the shark cutout then attach the googly eyes just above the mouth with glue.
