How to make an egg carton shark craft for kids
Making this recycled egg carton shark craft is very easy. Watch the below video or follow the simple instructions below that.
To make this shark craft, we need the spiky parts inside the egg carton. First, get an egg carton and cut two spikes out of it as shown below. Cut one of them slightly shorter than the other.
Now, we need to stick these parts together. Apply some glue inside the bigger part and stick the smaller part inside it as shown below. Now, paint one side of it blue and the other side white.
Once the paint is dried, stick googly eyes on either side.
Cut fins and tail out of blue carstock and hot glue them(grown ups only, please) on the shark’s body.
Our super cute shark craft is ready!
