Shark Party Ideas
Place sand and seashells on the walkway to the party.
On the front door hang a large sign (like you see on the beach) made from poster board that says "No Swimming!" or "Beach Closed Due to Sharks" with a picture of a large shark underneath.
Hang light blue and dark blue strips of
crepe paper from the entrance so guests will have to walk
through the paper - you could also use long strings of blue beads.
To make waves or to cover a wall in water use yards of tulle in different shades of blue - attach at the top of the wall with Command brand hooks or attach a string from one wall to the opposite wall and drape the tulle over the string.
Decorate the party table with
blue tablecloths and green, white or dark blue plates, flatware, cups
and napkins. In the middle of the table attach shark fins so it
looks like the sharks are circling the water under the table.
Kids love to play tag games (one person is "it" and if they touch or tag another person then that person becomes "it") and there are many variations that adapt to a Shark party theme.
Shark Base Tag
Use sheets of art paper and cut out large shark fin shapes. Lay about 5 down on the ground of the play area - these are the bases. The children can stand on the bases for 5 seconds and not be tagged by the person who is "it".
Shark Freeze Tag
When a child gets tagged by the shark ("it") they must freeze until they are unfrozen by another player. When “it” freezes everyone they get to pick the next shark.
If you are having the party at a pool see our pool games page.
Roll out blue fruit rollups and cut out shark fin shapes.
Place the fin standing up in the middle of the cupcake.
Lots of food can be cut into triangle shapes (shark fins!) ... tortillas chips, quesadillas, triangle cheese crackers, slices of cheese cut in half, pizza, etc.
