How To Use Your Watermelon Template
Colouring: Always the most simple activity but also the easiest to set up too. Grab coloured pens and pencils and colour in your watermelon.
Make a watermelon fan: Print this PDF onto card and then colour it in. Once you’ve finished cut out the watermelon slice and glue or tape it onto a craft stick.
Pom pom printing: This fun pom pom painted watermelon craft looks gorgeous and bright and makes a great alternative to reaching for the paintbrushes. Make sure you check out the post for all our tips on how to make this craft.
Decorate with seeds: As well as colouring in your watermelon you could also grab some watermelon seeds and glue these onto where the seeds are in the template. I’d use PVA (Elmers style) glue for this rather than a glue stick as they tend to be better for holding different shapes in place. This might be a good way to practice fine motor skills too.
Playdough mat: you could use this template as a playdough mat (laminate it if you want to use it more than once) and get your child to ‘colour in’ the green and pink parts of the watermelon with playdough. You could use small balls of black playdough for the seeds or why not use black buttons or watermelon seeds themselves? (Obviously if you are using small parts with young children then make sure that they are supervised at all times due to the choking risk)
