I am a huge fan of the movie Jaws. I loved Sharknado and Sharknado 2: The Second One on the Syfy Network. So Sharkweek on the Discovery Channel is a must-watch for me. It’s also fun to see the morning news shows jump into the fun too, by swimming with the sharks, like Ginger Zee on Good Morning America. If you don’t want your children to jump into the sea with great whites, there are still plenty of ways ways to make Sharkweek fun for kids – above sea level!
Check out these personalized sticky labels from Mabel’s Labels that are perfect for back to school.
If your child suffers from food allergies like A.J., Mabel’s Labels also has new allergy alert labels I reviewed to place on school cups, lunch boxes and bowls to keep them safe
I am not a crafty mom. Thank goodness A.J. does crafts at preschool, church and the local art camp where he dropped in this summer.
But I found these fun crafts, desserts and even costumes on Pinterest and may even attempt some one day.
We’re lucky enough to live in Atlanta, within a short drive to the Georgia Aquarium. Take your child to your local aquarium for a tour and a chat with the staff about the habits and lifestyle of sharks. A.J. has a blast every time we go to the Aquarium and I created this video in 2013 for our visit.
For the book fanatic like A.J., a good shark book is perfect to keep them interested and occupied. Here are some highly-rated books on Amazon.com:
