How to build a shark out of bricks

Sharks! What kid doesn’t love them? But, how do you build a shark out of bricks? I’ve tried a few times only to hear my son say, “Mom, that doesn’t look so good.” Ugh. Fail. He is truly so much better at building than I am.

Here are some inspirations and guides, so maybe you can have a real parenting “win” and truly impress with your shark building skills.

LEGO® Classic Shark

Using the Classic building set and the Creative Supplement box you can make this friendly shark, with just a mild bite!

Purchase LEGO® CREATORS Deep Sea Creatures 31088

Available in 2019 in the US for about $15

The reviews on Lego.com area great for this set. Deep Sea Creatures comes with instructions for 3 builds, and there is a 4th design available for a whale, too. The kit includes a crab, squid, and angler fish. Reviewers of this kit even mention that the anglerfish will fluoresce under actinic/UV light. Cool!
