Nothing says summer like a big slice of watermelon. Eating watermelon on a warm sunny day is fun, but if you’re stuck inside on a rainy afternoon, here’s a fun way to enjoy watermelon: make it out of ripped paper!
This is a very simple summer craft, but it entertains for a while because the kids have to take the time to rip up all of the paper pieces first.
Ripped Paper Watermelon
Supplies: white paper, pink or red paper, green paper, black paper, glue
Directions: Have the child rip up the pieces of green and pink/red paper. Then have them rip up the black paper in even tinier pieces (these pieces will make little seeds). On the white paper, have them draw the shape of a watermelon slice or draw one for them. Have them arrange the ripped pieces of green and pink paper inside the slice to form a watermelon and glue. Then glue the black pieces on top as seeds.
Happy summer crafting!
