My 5-year will be starting KINDERGARTEN soon!! I can’t believe it!! We’re reviewing sight words at home so that he’s ready for school when it starts in a few weeks. I found this adorable Feed the Shark game by Roaming Rosie and had to create something similar for Caleb. This is a great learning activity for Shark Week. Parents can change this activity for kids learning colors or their alphabets. Adjust according to your child’s needs.

Supplies for Feed the Shark
- Recycled cardboard
- Acrylic paint (grey, white)
- Black marker
- Glue gun with glue sticks
- Buckets (one to hold sight word balls and the other to go behind shark)
- Table tennis balls
- First, use a pencil to draw a shark’s face on recycled cardboard. Then use scissors to cut it out. The shark’s face doesn’t have to be perfect.
- Next, cut out a mouth for the shark.
- I used a white cardboard to make the teeth, but you can apply white paint to regular cardboard.
- Glue the teeth cutout to the mouth of the shark.
- Now it’s time for the eyes of the shark. I used a 1.5-inch circle punch to create the eyes. Using scissors works as well.
- Use a pencil to draw a small circle on the eye in top right corner. Use the black marker to fill in the areas around the small circle to complete the shark eyes.
- Glue to eyes on the side of the shark face. See pictures below for an example.
- Attach the shark face to a bucket using tape.
- Finally, write the sight words on table tennis balls using the black marker. It’s time to feed the shark!
Caleb had to correctly say the sight words before tossing the ball into the shark’s mouth. Make the game more challenging by adding a timer or making them toss the ball from a longer distance. This game can be played all year long. No need to wait until Shark Week to have fun.
