Make a Wooden Spoon Shark

crafty shark week

Wooden spoon dolls are a pretty traditional craft, but have you ever seen one in the form of a shark? This project from Activity Village uses a spoon as the base for creating a cute stylized shark in a jiffy. You can even use them as puppets! To make the jaw more puppet-like, try adding a control stick under the chin to allow you to open and close the mouth. They also have instructions for a similar project, making a wooden spoon crocodile. What other animals could you make out of spoons? [how to make a wooden spoon shark]
