(Inside: A quick how-to to make any applesauce or pudding or even fruit cup into your very own voracious man-eater. This DIY Shark Applesauce is hilarious and so easy. Your lunch-box-eater will love it.)
Let me start by saying that I’m not all about the underwater oceanography.
I can’t swim in the ocean for fear of a shark attack (yes, I know the statistics are so low, but still), or a jellyfish sting, or a giant whale swallowing me whole (probably watched Pinochio one too many times as a kid).
But, that does not stop me from having fun during Shark week, or just any old time by making Shark Applesauce.
No, really, tell me that you’re not thinking your kid needs a special lunchbox surprise when the latest installment of Sharknado comes out?!
Because, yeah, Shark Applesauce is the bomb.
And it’s freaking easy.
Like ridiculously easy.
So, let’s get our Shark Applesauce on and get those rumbly tummies full of some, well, applesauce.
And, if you are just about as in love with this quick lunchbox idea as I am, pin it, so you have it when you’re looking for ideas to spice-up your kiddo’s snacktime.
Supplies to Make Your Shark Applesauce
- Blue card stock
- White paper
- Black pen
- Googly eyes (because everything is better with googly eyes)
- Applesauce containers (we buy them in bulk–surely you, too, have some laying around)
How to Make Your Shark Applesauce
- Trace the top of the unopened applesauce container onto a piece of blue card stock.
- Cut one top fin and 2 smaller side fins out of the blue cardstock.
- Glue the larger fin to the top and the smaller side fins to each side.
- Turn the blue circle (now a shark) over.
- Cut out a small half circle from your white paper and glue to the bottom front of the shark.
- Glue 2 googly eyes above the white teeth and draw zigzag teeth in the half circle.
- Glue shark to the top of an applesauce container.
- SNAP you’re done.
