Shark Week is coming and this Jello Shark Snack is the perfect snack to enjoy while learning all about sharks.

Shark Week Snack

We love Discovery Channel’s Shark Week! Basically Shark Week is an entire week of television devoted to educational programs about Sharks, which we think is pretty cool.  I know my boys will be glued to the TV.

This Shark Snack is fun to put together and your kids will love helping in the preparation.  Make these and a fun Shark Craft while you watch Shark Week or for a fun Shark Birthday party.
