Sharks might look fierce in water, and I for one would not really feel comfortable being near one (but would totally admire one from a far), when it comes to shark crafts they can be the cutest thing ever!

We are quite fond of shark crafts and activities, our shark cootie catcher is one of my personal favorites as far as crafts goes, learning how to draw a shark is a super fun activity too.

These super simple printable shark puppets are great to use at story time or to just play around with!

Or Follow these Step by Step Instructions On How To Make This Printable Shark Puppet

Print the puppets. We used heavier print paper 120gsm, but regular print paper will work too (it will just be more prone to “wear and tear”.

If you printed the black and white version, we recommend you color it in before you cut out the pieces.

We colored ours with markers as we love the vivid colors.

Cut out the straps.

Don’t cut the shark yet as you’ll need to fold it as marked by lines.

Make 3 folds along the lines on the printable.

Now that you made the folds you can cut out the shark.

Reinforce the folds.

Glue the straps on the back of the shark (over the inside of the mouth part). One on top and one on bottom.

All done! Yous printable shark puppet craft is complete! This little guy is now ready to take a bite at anything that crosses it’s path.
