Shark Attack Snack!


Discovery Channel is wrapping up their shark week and my boys have been talking sharks non stop! My 7 year old thought we could make a shark out of fruit and this is what we came up with. They thought this was just the coolest snack ever!

Shark Attack Snack

We used 1 red apple, mini marshmallows, 1 chocolate chip, blue jello, 1 gummy Swedish Fish, goldfish crackers, & peanut butter.

We picked a good rounded side for the top of our shark from the apple. Cut a piece of the bottom so it will stand and not roll over. Cut the sides angled to the back to shape the body. Cut out a slit for the mouth. Save the scraps to make the fin. Cut the mini marshmallows diagonally to look like teeth. Attach them with peanut butter. Attach a chocolate chip with peanut butter for the eye. Cut out a fin from the apple scraps and also attach it with peanut butter.

Spoon the blue jello around the shark and add the gold fish. We had gummy Swedish Goldfish so we put one of those in his mouth.

We hope that you are having a fantastic shark week!

If you like our silly food we would love for you to follow along on our RSS feed , Facebook , & Twitter!

  2. I just found your blog ... and all I can say is SOOOOO FUN and soooo amazing! I'm absolutely following you. While I don't have kids of my own (yet!), I'm a 1st grade teacher and will be looking here for extra-fun classroom treats. Keep the creative ideas coming, please!!

  3. What a great blog! I have two boys myself and I am determined to make them good husbands--they know how to clean like a "master" (though they don't always!), do their own laundry, and I've taught them how to cook. At 11 and 7, they can make pasta, macaroni & cheese, quesadillas, scrambled eggs, and some other basics.

  4. How cute! I am always amazed at what people are able to come up with. I have no such talent so I love to see other people's ideas. I am a new follower from the Sunday Social blog hop and following thru GFC and Facebook. I would love a follow on both of those also when you get a chance. Thanks so much and have a great night!

  7. I wonder if my little nephews would love to eat that or if they will get distracted and play with it instead of eating. Lol! Either way, I'm sure it's something kids will enjoy. So simple to prepare too. Great job!

  12. I saw this on Pinterest a while ago, and we made our own on Friday. Our girls loved it! We had to improvise a little on the eye, and were missing the candy fish (and let me tell you, they were pretty disappointed, because it was their favorite part of the picture!), but other than that it was a total success! Thanks for sharing and inspiring! I've loved looking exploring your blog!
