Paper Plate Shark Craft For Kids

I was browsing the net and came across a paper plate shark craft by Cindy and her son Trevor from My Creative Life. It looks good so I made that our project last week. Besides the paper plate, we used different materials for other parts though.

Ayden can’t paint yet so I just let him sit on his high chair watching the elder brother at work.

Ayden got restless on the high chair so I transferred him into his baby cot where he tried to get hold of the newspaper! So kacau this boy! LoL!

On a second paper plate, paint half of it black while cut small triangle pieces from the other half.

Paste the teeth onto the black part and cut along the black area.

Cut triangles from grey foams for the fins, and eyes from white and black craft foams. Paste and the shark is done :)

Well, I guess after seeing the elder brother having so much fun making the shark, it is only fair that I let Ayden does some painting on his own too, isn’t it?


Here’s Ayden having a messy good time playing with blue tempera paste. Maybe we can let the shark swim in that blue ocean of Ayden’s :D

    Nice! I wouldn’t have thought of doing that with a party disposable paper plate! :)

    Ayden is always smiling in your photos – what a happy boy. I think it is a good idea to let the big brother shark swim in the little brother blue sea.
