Here’s a cool activity my co-teacher, Sandra Ong shared with me. We took some pictures of the final product but none of it in the making. So let me try my best to put it into words!

What you need

  • Watermelon seeds ( “Butong Pakwan” as we call it in the Philippines)
  • Paper Plate
  • Red and Green paint
  • Glue


Step 1: Give the kids the paper plates and let them paint it green and red (you can also already mix the paint with the glue)


Step 2: Let them glue on the watermelon seeds


Step 3: Once it has dried, fold the paper plates in the middle and staple or glue on a cardboard as the outer covering of the watermelon. (Older kids can do this, but for younger kids, the teacher might need to help out)


Thank you Teacher Sandra for this “yummy” activity!
