clothespin shark

Make this super cute Clothespin Shark to really make a splash with your kids this summer.
Step 1

First, click here to download and print the template; then cut out the shapes.

Step 2

Trace and cut the top of the shark’s body (1) and a fin (4) out of blue construction paper, the bottom section (3) of his body out of white construction paper, and small fish (1) out of orange construction paper.

Step 3

Lay the clothespin on its side so that the end you pinch with your fingers is to the left and the part that opens when pinched is on the right. Glue a small orange fish to the inside bottom of the shark’s mouth, near the end of the right side of the clothespin.
TIP: Lay your blue section above the clothespin and the white section below the clothespin to determine placement of the orange fish.

Step 4

Glue the bottom (white) part of the shark’s body to the bottom piece of the clothespin. The orange fish should be “peeking” over the white section of the mouth.

Step 5

Glue the top blue section of the shark’s body to the top piece of the clothespin.
Note: The blue tail part of the top section should overlap the bottom tail when pinched and the orange fish will be revealed when clothespin is pinched.

Step 6

Add a fin to the bottom centre of the blue section of the shark’s body.

Step 7

Attach a wiggle eye in place.
