What To Do With Shark Coloring Pages
You can make a mobile. After you have colored 5-7 sharks, glue them to card stock and then cut them out. Then hang them by string and tie those strings to a single string for a cute shark mobile.
Another idea is to make wall art. Take a piece of poster board and draw some ocean waves. Have your kids draw a few other ocean themed objects like a starfish or seashell. Then cut out the colored sharks and glue them to the board to set up a scene for a new wall hanging.
