We are adding the craft to your Craft Projects.
The project was added to your Craft Projects.
From the blogger: "Your kids will love this new spin on a paper plate watermelon craft, using colored yarn! The cool part about this activity is that it provides a great opportunity for kids to practice their fine motor skills. The weaving of the yarn over the watermelon definitely requires some dexterity and focus. We love making crafts that we can actually play with, so we were happy to add this watermelon yarn craft to our play food collection! My kids love playing make believe. They are often chefs, grocery shoppers or bakers. So, our play food gets tons and tons of traction."
Estimated CostUnder $10
Time to CompleteUnder an hour
Primary TechniquePaper Crafts
- Paper plate
- Pink and green yarn
- Glue or Tape
- Black marker or sharpie
Cut paper plate in half. Set one half aside for later.
Cut away the plate’s outer edge. This will be your watermelon’s rind.
Cut several small slits around the curved edges of your paper plate cutouts. These slits will be used to weave your yarn across the paper plate pieces to decorate your watermelon’s body and its rind. Use the slits to weave your pink yarn throughout your watermelon’s body, and your green yarn throughout the watermelon’s rind. Secure the ends of your yarn to the back of your watermelon pieces with tape.
Assemble your watermelon. Tape or paste your watermelon’s body and rind to the half of your paper plate that you had set aside.
Add your watermelon’s seeds! Using a black marker or sharpie, place black dots on the pink yarn.
NotesSkills supported: Fine motor, (cutting, weaving, taping ), math (counting), following instructions
