Shark Teeth Snacks

I was browsing on pinterest for some fun and easy shark week themed snacks for the family and I ran across an idea to make shark teeth. It seemed so cute and easy that I had to try it.  Everyone liked them and declared them to have the right balance between sweet and salty.

These are easy to make. You only need two ingredients and some wax paper. 

White chocolate. Use a good quality.

Melt white chocolate in the microwave,stirring every 15-20 seconds, until smooth.
Immediately dip the buggles into the melted white chocolate.
Lay them on wax paper, with a little space in between the teeth.

Allow the "shark teeth" to dry.  This shouldn't take long. You can pop them in the freezer for about 15 minutes to speed things along.

Pop them off the wax paper and into a bowl. Serve immediately or cover and seal for a few hours before serving.

They are not fancy, or time consuming, but they will bring a smile to a child's face. They pair well with shark week activities, or anytime that you might want a little sweet and a little salty.

Feeding Sharks Sensory Bag

This shark feeding sensory bag is tons of fun  for little hands! Made with super simple supplies, this sensory bag is perfect for shark week, or anytime your kids need some fin flipping fun!

I have quite a collection of blue, gray and blue gray paint samples in my kitchen junk drawer.  I love to paint. Walls, cabinets, boards, trim. Anything that requires no real thought nor detail is my jam so I am always grabbing samples of my preferred colors in hopes of finding a new project.

I finally found good use of some of the paint samples with this feeding sharks sensory bag. It wasn't too complicated to put together and my kids thought it was awesome. I hope your kids do too!

Hair gel
Paint samples
A zipper seal sandwich bag
Water Beads

Cut a shark from a grayish blue paint sample. Make sure the shark has an open mouth!
Cut a few assorted sized fish from any other color paint samples.

Fill a zipper seal sandwich bag with hair gel.

Add a generous amount of glitter to the bag.

Add a few water beads to the bag. 

Add the shark to the bag, and the fish too.

Close the bag and offer it to your child. Encourage the child to feed the shark the fish.

This is a fun quiet time activity for toddlers and preschoolers. If your kids don't have "nice hands" you can reinforce the edges with duct tape to prevent any accidental bag busting that could occur.
