Pink and green paint
Black pom poms
Glue or glue dots
Let’s make it!
This is such an easy craft so the instructions are pretty simple and quick! Start by painting the middle of your paper plate pink and then paint the outside of your plate green – you can leave a gap between the two colours too. When they are dry cut your paper plate watermelon in half or in to slices and add black pom poms for the seeds – I find that glue dots or pva glue are the best ways to gold these in place. The small pom poms are also great for fine motor skills too.
