I am continuing my weekly facebook live broadcasts on the Crayola Facebook Page! This week we are celebrating Shark Week with 3 shark inspired crafts for the whole family! 

Shop all the supplies I am using for today's projects at Crayola.com

Project 1: Shark Shooter Game

Shark Week Crafts Tissue Box Shark Shooter Game Crayola


  • Crayola Construction Paper
  • Crayola Glue
  • Crayola Markers
  • Scissors
  • Tissue Box
  • Pencil
  • Googley Eyes


  1. Use an empty tissue box and wrap the outside with blue construction paper. 
  2. Cut white teeth and a red mouth from construction paper that fits around the tissue box opening. Glue in place on the outside of the opening. 
  3. Cut shark fins and a tail from blue construction paper and glue to the sides and back of the tissue box. 
  4. Add google eyes or draw eyes with markers. 
  5. Take a scrap of white paper and write a fun message. Glue this message on the inside bottom of the box so you can see it through the mouth. 
  6. Ball up scraps of paper that will be the shooters. Take turns shooting the paper through the mouth of the shark.
