Next, color the outside of the paper plate blue to match the construction paper body. (It may be easier to color before folding the triangles inward, but these are the steps as they were originally given).

Finally, attach the created mouth and wiggle eyes to a shark shape and voila! Your cute shark is finished. If you're so inclined, you could add a fish or two to the shark's mouth for a quick snack as pictured above (but for youngers kiddos, you may want to skip that part...).
