Make a FINTASTIC Shark out of Foam, and embellish with wiggly eyes, jewels, and studs!

Sink your teeth into this foam craft to learn about shapes and sharks!  

  • Jawsome Shapes: This foam shark contains many shapes, like circles and triangles! Challenge your students to identify the different types of triangles before gluing them to the canvas. Are they equilateral, isosceles, or scalene?
  • Fin-tastic Senses: With layers of foam fins, wiggly eyes, and gemstone teeth, this canvas craft becomes a 3D masterpiece that empowers sensory exploration! Once their craft is dry, ask your students to glide their hands over their sharks. How do they feel? Which parts are rough and which are soft?
