How to Make Rocking Shark Paper Craft for Kindergarten
Time needed: 15 minutes
Cut a circle from blue construction paper. We used a circle of 11cm in diameter.
Fold the circle in half to make the body of your shark craft.
Next, cut out the tail fin, pectoral and dorsal fin from blue craft paper.
Take a cotton ball, dip it into white acrylic paint, and dab it on the circular half of the semi-circle to make the belly of your paper shark. Let it dry.
Paste googly eyes and fins on the body of your paper shark.
To complete the rocking paper shark craft, make a mouth and eyelashes to add a cute touch to your shark craft.
Now that the shark paper craft is ready, place it on a flat surface and give it a gentle nudge to watch your rocking shark sway!
This shark craft for preschoolers is sure to make your little ones laugh and have a fun time playing with it.
These masters of the ocean deserve a lot of respect and more importantly our understanding. When children make such fun crafts, they lose the fear surrounding the animal and often get curious about them.
