Every season provides foods with nutrients our bodies need and summer is no exception! The sweet, juicy bounty of watermelon is perfect to help us stay hydrated and energized through long, hot, summer days.
We’ve talked a lot about ways to build things with food in this animal alphabet series, but watermelon is so much fun to play with, too! Playing games with food can be a great way to interact with foods with no pressure to eat them. Here are a bunch of fun, traditional watermelon games to help you enjoy these last few weeks of summer, though some of them do involve eating the watermelon.
For more fun, watermelon rind can also be used for art activities like this dishtowel stamping activity.
However you choose to play, I hope you have fun and stay cool! Happy food play!
