We watch a lot of Baby Shark around here for my 1 year old. Now that it’s Christmas time, they have Christmas Shark, which is Baby Shark dressed up as Christmas characters. And so, Christmas this year wouldn’t be Christmas without a Christmas Shark Craft.
My youngest son absolutely loves Baby Shark. He dances and bops every time it comes on, and has the rest of us singing along with it, too. Truth is, I kinda like it myself, mostly because he likes it so much. And I really love how this cute Christmas Shark Craft turned out.
For our Christmas Shark Craft, you will need 3 craft sticks per shark and a sheet of blue cardstock. Other supplies include a shiny pipe cleaner, sparkles, medium googly eyes, blue tissue paper, along with scraps of red and white paper. You will also need a black, red, and white permanent or paint marker.
Christmas Shark Craft
- Craft sticks
- Blue cardstock
- Blue tissue paper
- Construction paper – red and white
- Medium googly eyes
- Shiny pipe cleaners
- Permanent or paint Markers – black, red, and white
- School glue
First, lay out 3 craft sticks in a triangle shape on a blue sheet of cardstock. Glue in place.
Let dry, then cut the paper away from the craft sticks, leaving only the triangle.
From one corner of the blue cardstock, cut a back tail fin shape. Cut also a triangle for the dorsal fin.
Tuck the fins between the paper and craft stick then glue in place if possible. If glued too well, simply glue behind the craft sticks.
Glue two googly eyes. Draw a shark mouth with the black and red markers. Make teeth with a white marker. Then, take blue tissue paper and glue along the bottom of the shark.
Make a Santa hat out of the red and white paper. The main hat shape out of the red, a thin rectangle trim of white, and a white circle on the point of the hat. Glue in place on the shark next to the dorsal fin.
String a few sparkles onto a shiny pipe cleaner. Wrap around the shark.
