It’s Shark Week this week on Discovery. It’s a wonderful way to get children involved in learning about shark safety, the marine habitats, and the conservation of our marine life. That doesn’t mean it has to be boring. You can jazz up the TV time with fun fact sheets and this Shark Attack Punch that you can make for each child individually.
The Shark Attack Punch features gummy blue sharks along with cranberry and white grape juice. This makes it healthy and fun for your little ones.
One fun fact is that there is two types of sharks that can survive in fresh water. Do you know what types of sharks? The bull shark and the glyphis shark. Bull sharks have been spotted even in the Mississippi river and as far north as Illinois.
To lessen your fears from movies like Jaws you won’t find a shark in a pool. This is one common fear among children growing up that a shark will just jump out and get them. The shark week can help them understand that they don’t come in pools. That sharks are more likely to be in places like off the coast of Cuba, Cape Cod, and around the Caribbean islands.
Drinks like this Shark Attack Punch help children remember that learning can be fun. It’s shown that children associate learning with taste. With any luck this Shark Attack Punch will do just that. We could always use a few more marine biologist in our oceans. The oceans are vast and many species go unknown to mankind. Along with the way we pollute the oceans that could definitely affect marine life.
