This shark headband was so much fun, even I had to join in on this activity.
Sam at Simple Everyday Mom has several options for this shark headband. The downloadable printable consists of 11 pages and you can pick and select which option you would prefer.
One option includes the shark headband ready to print in color, cut, assemble and wear. Another option includes two black and white pages that you can color in, assemble and wear. (This is the option we chose) A third option includes black and white pages with the parts of the shark that you can either print on colored card stock or color and build the shark, then assemble. Whichever you pick, I am sure it will be a lot of fun!
What you'll need for this activity :
Shark Headband Printable (You can get your copy by visiting Simple Everyday Mom:The printable includes multiple options)
Coloring pencils, crayons or markers (You will need two shades of blue, two shades of red and black)
Hark! A Shark! Book (Optional; We wore our shark headbands and read this book for a silly fun good time)
Now, you are ready to go!
First, we colored in our shark headband template using our coloring pencils in shades of blue and red.
Then, we cut the template in order to assemble the headband.
Once we were ready to assemble the headband, we grabbed some tape and assembled the headband.
Bam, now you are ready to celebrate shark week in shark-tastic fashion!
After we had our shark headbands, we read a great book titled Hark! A Shark! by Bonnie Worth and illustrated by Aristides Ruiz and Joe Mathieu. This book covered so many good aspects about sharks.
The book starts by discussing different species of sharks and what makes them unique. Then it talks a bit about tagging and shark conservation. All in all it was fun and very informative. Definitely a must have for your shark library.
