Whether you’re celebrating Shark Week, need something to do on a rainy day, or have a classroom full of kids with a creative side, this recycled paper egg carton shark is the perfect way to get into the crafting mood and talk about Shark education! 8 million tons of plastic end up in the oceans each year. Marine species, like sharks, ingest or are entangled in plastic debris and can cause serious injury. While making this paper shark, talk about the importance of switching from single-use plastic to recycled paper packaging. The more we reduce plastic and polystyrene foam waste, the less plastic ends up in our oceans. So get out the scissors, paint, and glue, this craft is totally jaw-some!
