Supplies Needed For Paper Plate Watermelon
How To Make A Paper Plate Watermelon
- Cut your paper plate in half. I went ahead and drew a line with my pencil where I wanted the girls to stop with the red and start with the green.
- It doesn’t really matter what color you paint first, so I had one of them paint the red while the other painted the green section. Then they switched.
- I then gave my girls each a cup of black beans and a bottle of craft glue to glue on their beans as their watermelon seeds. If you don’t have black beans you can also use black paint with a Q-tip. Having your child print down with the q-tip each seed. Or if you do have watermelons at home then save them. There is nothing better than using the real thing.
Alphabet Activity For The Letter W
Be creative when doing arts and crafts at home. This could easily turn into a letter Ww lesson or a lesson on how watermelon grow. Create a sensory bin to go with the theme as well. Making the craft into a well-rounded theme will make learning so much more fun!
There are so many ways that you could tie in this watermelon kids craft into an alphabet activity for the letter W or even when learning about growing seeds in the spring.
