If Baby Shark is the anthem being played 24/7 at your house, then this is definitely the perfect craft for you and your child. The best part is that it is both budget friendly, recyclable and a fun way to bond with your child.

Making your Baby Shark


  • Paper plates
  • Scissors, on hand
  • Pencil & eraser if needed for extra confidence, on hand


  1. Fold your paper plate in half “backwards” (with the bottom of the plate facing you, and the folded edges coming toward you).
  2. Using small scissors trim away the outer edges of the plate in a sweeping arched “M” design on the top half and bottom half, which should leave it looking like the hinges on the jaw, and the “m” shaped bottom & top of the mouth. Look at pictures on Google of real shark jaws to get inspiration, if the craft-samples in the photos don’t help you visualize the outline.
  3. Cut out a large oval from the middle, and then work from that center to cut out free-form teeth that follow the inside arc of the paper plate on the top and bottom. I just snipped away happily. Shark teeth are often quite irregular and jagged and not always parallel.
  4. Poke two holes on the edges of the mask and run an elastic or string  through
