It’s almost time for Shark Week 2014! Do you love Shark Week? We do! This year, the fun begins on TV on August 10, but you don’t have to wait until then to plan your shark week. I know many of the shows come on pretty late in the evening, so you may want to DVR them or borrow some from the library. Especially if it’s a rainy week where you are, you’ll want crafts and activities to keep them busy during the day.

If I didn’t link to instructions for a project, it’s because I couldn’t find them–only the picture was available. I figured some of you crafty types could either figure it out or modify it. But I scoured the web to find you several dozen of the cutest, easiest Shark Week crafts, snacks, activities and printables for kids.
