One of the best things about Halloween is pumpkin carving! I love celebrating this time of the year by recreating my favorite animals.
Another event that I love is Shark Week. There’s something fascinating about those ocean creatures that keep me stuck to the TV. So I thought… why not combine both Halloween and Shark Week?
And that’s how this Shark Week Pumpkin Carving Stencil was born!
Here at Kids Activities Blog we LOVE printables, so it simply made sense to make a cool shark stencil!
Check out these kids activities for those days when you can’t think of new games, crafts or lesson plans to do during the weekend (or any day of the week, really!)
Why not make something delicious too? Edible crafts are an easy (and delicious) way to spend fun, high-quality family time.

To make the perfect jack-o-lantern, we have the following recommendations:
Pick the right pumpkin (find one that has smooth skin!), print our shark stencil printable, get your carving tools and you’re all ready for family-friendly fun!
For this activity, we recommend letting adults carve the pumpkin pattern and have the kids pull out the pumpkin seeds, that way everyone is involved and safe!
Tip: Instead of using a candle, you can try illuminating your pumpkin with an LED tea light.
These Jack-O-Lantern are a great decoration to keep outside on the porch or on the window sill.
