Shark awareness has gained popularity, as this marine fish is fast becoming the target of hunters. The shark awareness project aims to educate our children about preserving marine life. With this aim in mind, we decided to make a shark for the show and tell class. Things needed included:
You need for Duct Tape Paper Cup Shark:
- 2 Paper cup
- Grey colored duct tape
- Scissors or cutters
- Chart or construction paper
- Marker or paint
After we had assembled our material, we went to create our toothy friend!
- Connect the cups mouth side together, secure with tape. This will make the main body of the shark. Complete it by covering it with the grey duct tape.
- Now for the fins: fold over a strip of duct tape, draw the dorsal fin leaving 2 inches on the open end to stick to the shark’s back. Repeat this for the tail or caudal fin, the pectoral fins, cut them carefully and attach to the main body.
- Now to give our shark some character, draw a thin oval on red paper whose centre is equal to the width of the bottom of your cup, make the ends pointed, and extend them to the sides to make the mouth gap.
- Draw and cut zigzagged teeth on white paper and stick to your red mouth. Glue the mouthpiece to the main body.
- Paint or draw the gill slits right in front of the pectoral fins. Draw nostrils, darken the tail, and fin edges to complete the look.
In this, we way we made our toothy friend to create shark as well as marine preservation awareness or kids Duct Tape Paper Cup Shark.
