I introduced real scissors for this project to my preschooler and used the opportunity to show him how to hold the scissors correctly and talked about scissor safety.

Fold over the triangles and then fold the circle in half.

Sharks are often seen as the "bad" fish in the ocean. To help create an appreciation for these animals, introduce your children to a friendly great white shark in the Gilbert series by Jane Clarke.
