Candy Shark Jello Snacks

Every time Shark Week rolls around, I think about the birth of our oldest son. As we snuggled our new baby boy in the hospital, we enjoyed all the cable channels we didn’t have at our house. After flipping through all the available channels, Mr. Happy Brown House would settle on watching Shark Week–he couldn’t resist. Now that we have two boys, I’ve come to realize that sharks are just fascinating to my little adventure-seekers. Candy Shark Jello Snacks are a perfect treat for Shark Week, a pirate birthday party, a beach birthday party, or even an ocean unit study. Whatever the occasion, your little ones are sure to love this easy snack for kids!

Candy Shark Jello Snack Cups--perfect for an easy summer treat during Shark Week, a pirate birthday party, or the beach.
