Shark Character Puppets

Supplies:

  • color construction paper (if you don’t have color paper you can use white paper and color your characters with markers/crayons/color pencils)
  • glue stick (tape or liquid glue will work)
  • something to make large and small circles (a compass or any cylindrical bottles/cups/jars you find at home can be used to trace circles, you can decide on their sizes, mine are approximately 3″ and 2″ in diameter)
  • scissors
  • pencil or pen
  • optional: Popsicle sticks (unsharpened pencils will work)
  • optional: googly eyes
  • optional: a shoebox to make a diorama
  • optional: white color pencil or crayon to draw teeth
  • optional: markers/crayons/color pencils to add details

shapes needed to make each shark

Instructions for Each Shark:

  • select a color for your shark
  • cut two large circles of the same size, one from white paper and one in your selected color
  • cut two small circles of the same size, one from red paper and one in your selected color
  • cut out a triangle in your chosen color
  • cut the white and red circles in half (you will only need a half circle of each color per shark)
  • layer the white half circle over the large color circle, glue it in place
  • take the small circle, in your selected color, and cut it in half (these will be the arm/pectoral fins) tuck one on each side of your shark head and glue in place
  • take the red half circle, this will be mouth, you can add zig-zag lines to make teeth or color in teeth with a white color pencil or crayon, you can also change the shape of the mouth to make a smile, it’s up to you!
  • once the mouth is in place glue the googly eyes or make some out of white paper by cutting tiny circles with black marker dots in the center
  • now glue the triangle paper to the top of the shark, this will be the to top/dorsal fin
