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!

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.
