10 Quick & Easy Shark Week Recipes & Activities #SharkWeek


Shark Week is just about here & now that my family is home from our beach vacation, I can calmly think about them again. It was about nine years ago when my dad and I went for a swim while vacationing on the NC coast, and we had a very close and scary encounter with three nurse sharks in pretty shallow water. I've been afraid to venture into the ocean ever since and hold my breath when my kids enter those same waters with their dad. Talk about anxiety!

Shark Week is a big deal, though, and just about everyone I know looks forward to it. We've never done a whole lot with it, but my son, who is seven years old, is quite fascinated by sharks. He even petted a shark while we were at the NC Aquarium last week! Docile as the sharks were in their tank, you couldn't have paid me to do that.

We're having some fun with Shark Week with some cool activities, snack ideas & recipes! We've compiled 10 Quick & Easy Shark Week Recipes & Activities for you all to try and enjoy all week long!
