This week for Family Game Night we are celebrating Shark Week!! We have put together the Ultimate Kid-Friendly Shark Week Guide so we had to add a fun family-friendly game to the list. Pressman Toys has a super fun and exciting game called Shark Bite and it is the perfect game to play while you are celebrating Shark Week. For our snack this week we made Shark Attack cups! They are so fun and yummy and the perfect snack for shark week.
Shark Bite from Pressman Toys is a super fun and exciting game. It’s the perfect way to celebrate sharks this week. The game is fast-paced and full of excitement. Try to grab the sea life from the shark’s mouth without getting bitten. The excitement and anticipation make this game a lot of fun. You never know when the shark is going to bite which keeps you on your toes. This is one of our favorites and we played it over and over and over again.
2 fishing rods
12 Various Sea animals
Who Would Enjoy This Game:
Shark Bite is designed for ages four and up and for 2-4 players. This game is really easy to play. Anyone can play it really. My 8-year-old loved it. She kept asking to play it again. I think we played it about 50 times during our family game night and she has brought it out several times since then wanting to play again. My older kiddos were entertained with it because of the anticipation of when will the shark bite. I don’t think they loved it as much as my 8-year-old but they still enjoyed it. It is a lot of fun and you never know when the shark will bite so there is that element of fear involved. It’s also enjoyed by puppy sharks. We had to be really careful to keep an eye out for puppy sharks running around our house as well as we were playing.
Is It Fun:
Yes, it is a lot of fun. You never know when it will go off so you are on the edge of your seat the entire game. My daughter laughed so hard every single time the shark bit. It was so funny to see her get so nervous when pulling out the sea animals and squeal every time the shark would bite. We laughed so much.
Gameplay is very easy. It’s a simple game but a lot of fun. To set up the game simply push open and down on the shark mouth until it locks in place. Put all of the sea animals into the holes around the shark mouth. You will hear them click into place. Put the shark in the middle of the table with the fishing poles close so everyone can use them. Put the die close to the game as well so it’s easy to reach for everyone.
Once you have it set up you will decide who is going first. We just let our youngest go first. Roll the die to see if you need to grab one or two fish. You will use the fishing pole to hook onto the loop and pull your piece out. You will take turns pulling out sea animals until the shark bites! If the shark bites on your then you lose. It’s a ton of fun. You can keep playing rounds as long as you like.
I don’t really have any concerns with this one. It’s really easy to play and enjoyed by all ages. If you have a child who is scared easily though by surprises then you might want to consider if it’s the best game for your kiddo. My 8-year-old loved it but I could see where some children may be scared since it jumps up and bites. Our reaction was to laugh. It doesn’t hurt at all though it’s just light fabric and plastic. In fact, towards the end, we were playing with just our hands instead of the fishing rods cause it was faster and easier. So no concerns about it hurting your child at all.

For snacks this week we made Shark Attack cups! They are so fun and cute. It’s Shark Week so we had to have a fun shark themed snack. It’s kind of a take on dirt cups. We used some blue jello and added some shark gummies. We put some whip cream waves on top to give you a fun shark attack cup. My 8-year-old loved these.
1 large box of blue jello (we used chilled berry)
1 bag of shark gummies
1 container of whip cream
Put some of the shark gummies in the bottom of the container. I made individual cups or you could also do one large bowl. I just put a handful in each container (about 6-7).
Prepare the jello using the instructions on the box and pour it over the sharks. I didn’t really measure how much I put in each cup I just divided it up evenly. We made four individual cups with one box of jello.
Use the whipped cream to add some white cap waves to the top to give it that ocean effect.
They were a big hit!
