What You'll Need:

  • Several Sheets of Blue and Gray Tissue Paper
  • Scissors
  • Several Straws (at least one for each child)
  • Masking Tape

  1. Using scissors, cut several blue and gray shark shapes from tissue paper.
  2. Use masking tape to mark two goal lines in the playing area about 15' to 20' apart.

At the Party:
  1. Line the children up along the goal line.
  2. Hand each child a straw, and place a tissue paper shark at each child's feet.
  3. To start, the children place the straws in their mouths, bend down, and inhale through their straws to pick up the tissue sharks and attach them to the ends of the straws.
  4. Once each child picks up his/her shark, he/she runs to the goal line.
  5. If a shark drops off a straw, the child must attach it again before advancing.
  6. The first child to cross the goal line with his/her shark still attached wins!
