5 Fun Tips to Creating a Shark-themed Day

We all know how popular baby shark is. We have a little stuffed Baby Shark that sings, a few Baby Shark books and yes, our child loves to sing and dance to...Baby Shark doo doo doo doo doo doo! So, it's fun when we have Shark-themed days.

1) Get the entire family involved. Pups included. We have a shark fin costume that BabyPom wears around Halloween so it's fun to dress him up as well to create that atmosphere!

2) Don't be afraid to be goofy. We sing and dance to Baby Shark on our TV, without a care of who might be walking by outside or looking. Toddlers respond to fun and uninhibited silliness.

3) Read Shark-themed books -With a fun plethora of Shark books listed above, there's something for kids of all ages. Even adults can learn some interesting facts.

4) Shark-themed arts and crafts -Our toddler's more into tracing lines and coloring at his age. So, tailor it to your age group. We can draw sharks and have him try to copy it or even color it in. We love using water drawing so that it disappears when it dries and it's easy to clean up. He also loves to color with markers! In older preschool kids, it may be more fun to create sharks out of paper. Or  it would be fun to try out some of the experiments in Extreme Ocean: Amazing Animals, High-Te h Gear, Record-breaking Depths and Much More.

5) Finish it off with a trip to the pool, bath, or backyard kiddie pool! Our toddler isn't swimming quite yet but he sure loves to play with his duckies in the bath...splashing water...kicking his mother out of the bath so he can have it all to himself! Best part it, he gets all tired out playing in the water and he sleeps well afterwards.
