Color Cut Glue Shark Freebie – Just in Time for Shark Week!

Color Cut Glue Shark

All right, I admit it… I definitely get sucked into the whole shark week thing.  And super ashamed to say that I will be tuning into to see if Michael Phelps beats the shark.  It is all such ridiculous and mindless television but I do enjoy to zone out once in awhile.  Last night, I decided since everyone LOVED the free Spring and Summer Color Cut and Glue projects why not create a shark.  Download your free copy at the end of the post.

This is a simple one page black and white activity to practice coloring, cutting out simple shapes, planning out where to glue the pieces (the trickiest part) and then paste the shapes together to create the shark.  Just print and it is all set to go.

This activity encourages:

  • scissor skills practice
  • eye hand coordination
  • bilateral coordination
  • motor planning
  • sequencing

So look at that – all in the name of Shark Week and you can have fun practicing those skills.  Haha!  Remember to get your free copy by signing up for our newsletter at the bottom of the post.
