Pretend Watermelon

     Watermelons went on sale this week, so we got a large one, cut it open, and enjoyed the summer food.  My daughter loves watermelon but hates the seeds.  For our summer kitchen area, we have already made ice cream and Popsicles, so here is our watermelon.
First paint a paper green whatever way you want.

We tried Lego's and fingers and then just went with a paint brush.  My daughter doesn't like getting messy anymore.

Paint a paper red and add seeds.

I had this perfect piece of cardboard off a box, so I just cut and glue paper on front and back.  It reminds me of Eric Carle's paintings and the Very Hungry Caterpillar's dinner.

Check back tomorrow for corn on the cob.
