My boys are obsessed with sharks so Shark Week is kind of a big deal in our house. The boys had so much fun playing with the Playdoh Mats I made. They loved cutting out shark teeth, placing them on the shark and then pretending that the shark was eating fish. They also had fun creating underwater scenes with seaweed, fish and shrimp. Luc had a harder time with this one, but both mats kept the kids entertained for quite a while and since I laminated the printables, I know they will provide lots more fun in the future.
Here are some of the things I gave the kids to play with (there are so many possibilities, you can easily just use what you have on hand):
Mini Cookie Cutters (we used the triangle for the shark teeth and one that looked like a fish)
Playdoh Set (Any playdoh set with a few basic tools such as a rolling pin, knife, shape cutters and shape molds will work)

I hope you enjoy these mats as much as we do!
