Shark Activities for Tots with Free Printables

Dinomite, Bulldozer, and Princess are enjoying shark activities on their shelves right now.  Sunshine decided that she must have her own as well.  

I am so excited with how these shark activities for tots with free printables turned out.  They are absolutely adorable and Sunshine loves them.

Knowing Sunshine becomes confused with the difference between sharks and whales, both are included in this set of activities.

Here's what's on our shelves!

Language

S is for Shark
 Sunshine will use the paint and paint brush provided to paint the large S.  For those who prefer whales over sharks, I have provided a "W is for Whale" printable in the tot pack.

Math

Counting Sharks
 Sunshine will count the sharks, trying to match the number of sharks on each card.

Science & Culture

Shark vs. Whale
Sunshine will sort the cards properly.  Pictures of each of the animals are on the label cards as a control for little ones.
 For those who are a little older, there is also an option to sort fish vs. mammals.

Art

Triangle Shark Teeth Gluing
 Sunshine will glue the triangle teeth into the shark's mouth.

Practical Life & Sensorial

Pouring Water
Sunshine will practice pouring water, using two baby food jars.  She loved scooping last week, so I thought I'd try this. She's never done it before.

Shark & Whale Sensory Bin Tweezing Activity
Sunshine will use the tweezers provided to tweeze out the sharks and whales, placing them in the cup provided.

Source: The idea for the tweezing component of this activity came from Little Bins for Little Hands.
