It’s time for the beach! And sharks! Well, hopefully not sharks. At least not right next to you, though they are fun to watch. And craft. So even if you can’t get to a beach, it’s still time for our Craft Stick Shark Craft!
This Craft Stick Shark Craft is exactly that, made out of craft sticks. With a few triangles of craft paper, a large googly eye, and white jagged paper teeth. The better to eat with.
Except our sharks may look mean, but they’re really friendly. We painted our friendly guys a blue and a lighter purple color, by mixing just a drop of white paint into the colored paint. You can, of course, make yours grey, blue, whatever color you want. Have fun with it!
Craft Stick Shark Craft
- craft sticks, 7 each
- large googly eyes
- acrylic paint – grey, blue, purple, etc
- white and blue cardstock or construction paper
First, line up 7 craft sticks. It should go 3 the same length, 2 sticking out back, then 2 more the same as the top 3. Cut a spare piece of paper to the same length and size as the craft sticks. Glue on back to keep in place.
Paint in your sharky color of choice. Let dry.
Cut 2 strips of white paper. Snip jagged lines for teeth. Glue on the back of the craft sticks, in the space where the 2 are pushed back. Glue on a googly eye.
Cut 3 triangles out of the blue paper. Glue one for the fin, one on top, and another larger one for the back tail fin, glued onto the craft sticks.
