Summer is here and it's time to enjoy all things watermelon! We made this fun craft with a paper plate as the base and added a collage element.

Start with:

  • Paper Plate
  • Cardboard
  • Paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Black Beans

Create it!

Step 1: Cut the textured portion off of a paper plate. Paint it green and allow it to dry.

Step 2: Paint cardboard red. Allow it to dry and cut it into smaller pieces.

Step 3: Cut the remainder of the paper plate in half. To one half, glue the red painted pieces of cardboard.

Step 4: Trim the edges off the cardboard.

Step 5: Glue the green portion of the paper plate around the bottom edge of the half paper plate to create the rind.

Step 6: Glue black bean "seeds"  to the watermelon.

These would be a fun activity for a watermelon themed party this summer!
