Brielle had so much fun with her paper plate fish craft recently and asked to do more. When Gramma was due for a visit, I decided to let her help Brielle make another craft (or really was it Brielle who helped Gramma?) Together they made a fun watermelon craft for summer!
First step: cut a circle out of a green paper plate.
Next, peel a piece of Con-Tact Brand Privacy Film and Liner and stick it to the back of the paper plate.
Love this shot below with one of them helping the other (not really sure which is which) but they both have the same facial expression. 🙂
Press it down to make sure it’s secure.
Cover the sticky contact paper with red and pink tissue paper squares.
Brielle kept telling Gramma to “squish it up” but Gramma preferred to have them flat.
Punch black shapes (I used a leaf punch) and use a gluestick to adhere them onto your pink and red watermelon center.
Proudly show off your watermelon craft (that apparently, according to Brielle, is good enough to eat!)
This was a fun and easy craft that both Gramma (who claims I took all the creative energy out of her when I was born) and Brielle could do together.
If you make a watermelon paper plate craft like ours, please send me a photo! We’re working on our 2nd annual Reader’s Feature!
