Baby Shark do do do do.. that’s all it takes for the catchy toddler tune to be stuck in your head for the rest of the day. Sorry, not sorry.

Have a Baby Shark fan in your house? Here are a bunch of great party ideas plus a few fun themed gift ideas!

It doesn’t matter if you opt to make your own desserts or buy them from a local bakery, you’ll still need a topper! The lovable Shark Family is all decked out for the party on these super cute cake and cupcake toppers!
Speaking of cupcakes, nothing is more impressive at a party than a themed cupcake tower – luckily there is a Baby Shark themed one available (of course!)

Party hats are always fun! Head over to Simple Everyday Mom to snag this awesome Shark Headband Template to print and create Shark headbands for all of your guests (or at least all of those under the age of 5).
Keeping kids occupied during a party is always a challenge but have no fear, this Feed the Shark Game from Mommy Made That will keep little hands and mind busy for a while.
Check out this new twist on a classic party game; Pin the Teeth on the Shark!
Instead of sending party guests home with loot bags, why not send them home with a craft that was made at the party? The Inspiration Edit has a fun shark themed craft that would be perfect for a Baby Shark party! Kids can create their own Hammer Head Shark complete with underwater scene.
Are you a fan of painted rocks? Why not have party guests paint their own, shark themed rocks? Recreate these Stone-Cold Shark Painted Rocks from Sustain by Craft Habit at your Baby Shark party, even switch out the standard shark grey for yellow, blue, orange, green and pink to more resemble everyone’s new favorite shark family!
Looking for a mess-free craft to occupy little party guests? Why not have them color their own Baby Shark coloring page? The markers only color the page, not your couch!
