It is Shark Week! We love shark week in our home. We look forward to it every year, it’s a big part of our summer. One thing I have noticed though is that it’s not all kid-friendly. My 8-year-old always wants to be involved but can’t watch all of the Shark Week shows due to the times they are on so I like to add in some fun activities and things that he will love. It gives me a chance to add in some education as well. We love the ocean in our home so it’s always fun when I can teach my kids about sharks and the ocean. A wonderful friend and blogger has put together the Ultimate Kid-Friendly Shark Week Guide with some fun books, movies, games, gear, and recipes. Hope you enjoy it. Make sure to scroll to through as there is a great giveaway with some really awesome prizes.
