I've found solution using find and ofcourse chmod a+x.

find some_directory -type f -iname "*.sh" -exec chmod a+x {} \;

The command will give a+x rights to all .sh files below some_directory we pick.

Explanation of -iname param:

-iname pattern
  Like -name, but the match is case insensitive.  For example, the patterns `fo*' 
  and `F??' match the file names `Foo', `FOO', `foo', `fOo', etc.
  The  pattern `*foo*` will also match a file called '.foobar'.
