Shark Valentine Card Box

By Leslie Manlapig

My son LOVES sharks, we’ve made quite a few shark themed diys to satisfy his interest at this stage, the most recent being his very own Shark Valentine Card Box!  It was really easy to make and turned out super cute!  Sharks are always very hungry so your little ones will need to keep feeding the shark with valentine notes and kisses xx

And if you’re looking for some cute Valentine’s Day cards to feed your shark, check out Michelle’s free printable bird Valentines.  They’re tweet-riffic!

Materials Needed:

  • Craft Paint
  • Paint Brushes
  • Cereal Box Cardboard
  • Brown Paper Bag
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • White Glue
  • Sharpie Marker

First, draw a picture of a shark onto your cereal box cardboard.  Make the width of the shark the same as the width of the brown paper bag.

Cut the shark out and trim your bag. Your shark should fully cover the brown paper bag.
