Celebrating Shark Week with the Kids

We are Amazon Associates

It’s Shark Week on the Discovery Channel! 

Usually, my husband and I just enjoy Shark Week with a little wine and relaxation after the kids go to bed. But this year, I thought it would be fun to include the kids. Now, I still won’t let them watch the scary shows about shark attacks, but how about using this as an excuse to teach the kids about sharks and how they are such amazing creatures?

Here are our top picks to get the kids just as excited as you are about Shark Week!
