HomeParenting7 Ways to Celebrate Shark Week with Kids August 5, 2014 This post brought to you by Cold Stone Creamery. All opinions are 100% mine. Shark Week this year starts August 10th, are you read? The annual week of non-stop shark action on the Discovery Channel™. Even if your kids aren’t old enough or mature enough to handle Shark Week, we have several ways to get your kids involved in the fun (without having to watch all of the suspense). From yummy shark cupcakes to fun crafts, here are 7 ways to celebrate Shark Week with kids: Great Blue Shark Cupcakes from Cold Stone Creamery Cold Stone Creamery is a favorite of our family’s! We were given a gift card to try out these cupcakes and 6 people agree, these are the real deal. We took the kids to Cold Stone Creamery to try out these Great Blue cupcakes that they have available from July 2nd to August 17th in celebration of Shark Week. The cupcakes are available in the freezer and come in a pack of 6. These Great Blue Cupcakes come in a chocolate edible cup that is filled with a layer of yellow cake, then blue sweet cream ice cream and then topped with fluffy blue frosting and a gummy shark. Delicious and the perfect treat to celebrate Shark Week with! The cupcakes come COLD so can easily be transported home to eat later. Just store them in the freezer and eat whenever (or can be eaten at Cold Stone Creamery.) Cold Stone Creamery always serves up fresh, high-quality ingredients – all ice cream is made fresh daily in every location. If you haven’t been to a Cold Stone Creamery before, you must! In addition to the great cupcakes and other frozen pre-made goodies – they will make your favorite ice cream on a cold granite slab. Just choose your favorite ice cream and mix-ins and right in front of you, will mix it up and serve it however you like (in a cone, in a cup, as a shake and more.)
