14 Cool Watermelon Inspired Crafts
To me, there’s nothing better than biting into fresh, juicy watermelon on a hot summer day. To Sam, my picky little eater, there’s nothing less enjoyable. Sigh. What he does love? Crafts! So…why not combine the two and look for fun summer watermelon crafts that kids will love?!
I’ve gathered together some of my favorites for inspiration including an adorable watermelon garland, watermelon bowl, watermelon-themed windsock, watermelon play dough, ice paint and slime as well as a super cool erupting watermelon. I’ve also added projects to the list that I might tackle as well, including a watermelon painted mason jar, DIY watermelon serving tray, cute scented candles and a stamped watermelon-themed doormat.
While Sam and I don’t agree on whether watermelon is one of the great symbols of summer, we both agree that we love everything on this list!
