Baby Shark: Baby Shark Cootie Catcher

If you have young children then you may have heard the very popular Baby Shark song. If you haven’t, then I am sorry for ruining your life. The Baby Shark song has become very popular thanks to PinkFong. My household hears it on a daily basis, at least a dozen times a day. My youngest son is obsessed. He has become a huge shark fan because of this song.

We have recently been trying to teach my son how to say more words, and we have found that by using his love for sharks we can get him to interact more. So when I found this fun little cootie catcher shark I knew I had to help him make it. We play with it all day long. He even uses it to dance to his favorite song. We have taken an idea we got from his speech therapy teacher and have used the cootie catcher to “catch” words. We take the flashcards with words and images on them that his therapist gave us and we feed them to the shark. As my son feeds the shark he says the word. This helps him articulate words and makes it fun and interactive for him.

Now even if your kids don’t need speech therapy I am sure you can find other fun ways to use this fun cootie catcher. Our oldest just loves chasing her brother around with the shark and pretending its going to eat him. Which of course brings endless laughter. Be sure to check out Easy Peasy and Fun’s tutorial on how to make this fun Shark Cootie Catcher. You will love the adorable little puppet toy.
