Shark Hat Craft

This is such a cute craft to make with the kids. It is perfect for a shark-themed birthday party, ocean-themed party, or under-the-sea event. Add even more excitement to this craft by making Shark Attack Drinks or this Summer Shark Drink. Add a Watermelon Shark Fruit Salad to round out the fun food ideas for your shark day.

My boys loved this hat when they were younger. It appeared most recently when my college-age student used it for Under the Sea week at a camp she is volunteering at this summer.
