The Ultimate Kid-Friendly Shark Week Guide & Giveaway

*Post Provided by Parenting In Progress*

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 break. 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 so I like to add in some fun activities and things that she 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 we can teach our kids about sharks and the ocean. I have 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 we have a great giveaway with some really awesome prizes.

  1. This is a fantastic giveaway! The first thing we did this morning is turn on shark week. My daughter is a fanatic!

  2. I want to see devil sharks, hopefully Hulu shows shark week since we don’t have cable.

  3. My daughter is six years old and just discovered shark week. She was enthralled watching the great white sharks doing their thing. It terrifies me! Lol! Seriously,sharks have scared me since I was her age and saw Jaws! I will watch it with my Scarlett every year now. She enjoyed it so much. We popped popcorn and drew the sharks we saw on her blackboard. Love that child!!!!

  4. My sons excitement is my favorite thing he is the sweetest thing when he watches those sharks 🙂

    Минусы – большой вес и высокая цена.
