DIY Watermelon Sun Catcher

This cute little watermelon sun catcher was a hit in my son’s pre-school! It is really easy and entertaining for your little kids to help you make. 

 

 

In my neighborhood we do a “play school” once a week for the kids that were almost pre-school age but didn’t quite make the cut. It was my turn last week and I of course was trying to come up with something at the last minute. My letter for the day was “W” so I thought why not make something like a watermelon. This was really easy and the kids loved squishing it around! They also felt really special that we hung them in the window. Kids are cute.

 

 

WHAT YOU NEED:

  1. Ziploc baggies
  2. Clear hair gel
  3. Red food coloring
  4. Black Felt
  5. Scissors
  6. Tape

 

 

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Cut little “seeds” out of the black felt.
  2. Poor a Tbs of hair gel into a ziploc bag and add food coloring. 
  3. Next put in your seeds.
  4. Zip the bag shut, fold it over a few times, and secure it with tape.
  5. Let your toddler squish it around until the color is fully mixed. 
  6. Hang it in a window to let it catch the sun!

 

Does anyone have any other great “W” themed activities? I’d love to hear them!

 

XOXO
