Shark Week – I’m still at it! Why you ask? Not only because we LOVE Shark Week but also because I need a couple weeks to pull this stuff all together!! Every year I say I’ll have SO much time in the summer but I swear I’m busier than I am during the school year!

No Sew Shark Hand Puppet Materials:

You can use the craft sheets of felt but I purchased it by the yard at Walmart since it was cheaper (and softer!). Lay your felt on a hard flat surface like a table and make sure you have two sheets laying on top of each other. You’ll need two “hand mitts” for each shark hand puppet.


  1. Using your sharpie marker lightly trace around your hand as shown above forming a glove type shape. Leave extra room around your hands to make the mitt a little larger than your hands.

2. Cut the hand mitt out of your felt pieces and flip the material so the Sharpie marker lines are inside the mitt.

3. Using your hot glue glue the edges of the mitt together leaving the arm hole open.

4. Next glue on the large googly eye, a fin shaped piece of grey felt, and some teeth cut from the white felt.
