"Transform a disposable plate into a scene under the sea with two cute shark puppets you can make swim around. I think the paper sharks are so adorable and the whole activity is fun for kids to do. We’re providing a printable template for ease of use, or you can freehand your own sharks and underwater plants. Younger children may need some assistance, but older kids should be able to complete this project independently. An adult should prep the paper plate by cutting a slit near the bottom edge for the puppets. Have the kids work on fine motor skills by tracing the templates onto colored paper and cutting the pieces out. Practicing scissor skills and tracing is beneficial for improving fine motor and writing skills. The swimming sharks is a great opportunity to inspire kids’ creativity and imagination. They can make up a little play for the sharks to act out or even make additional sea creature puppets. You can also create a stationary ocean scene by gluing the sharks directly to the plate, rather than making puppets and cutting an opening in the plate for them. Keep the theme going and make a shark headband craft too. It’s the perfect addition to a summer crafting session."
