1. Watermelon Coloring Pages
As mentioned above, the possibilities for our watermelon cutout printables are endless. The easiest way of using them is as coloring pages. Especially our large template makes an adorable watermelon coloring page for preschoolers.
The bigger the picture of a watermelon is the easier it will be for younger children to stay inside the lines. To make it more difficult, choose one of our smaller templates for older children.
2. Watermelon Stencils
Often we use the medium and small printables as watermelon craft templates. They are great for preschool watermelon stencil projects.
Using them as watermelon stencils is pretty easy. Choose the preferred size of your watermelon, print it, and cut them out. Then there are different techniques on how to use them as stencils.
Tip: There is no need to waste printer inc and use the colored templates for this project. The watermelon outlines are just perfect as stencils.
3. Learn Counting With Watermelon Seeds
Why not turn our watermelon printouts into a fun math game and learn your numbers and counting in a playful way?
All you would need is our large watermelon outline template and some markers. Print the template 10 times to learn the numbers 1-10. Then write numbers from 1 to 10 in the right-hand corner of your printout and turn them into a watermelon worksheet.
Now let your children color the watermelon and count the seeds at the same time. Preferably they should only color the matching numbers of seeds black.
Pretty simple isn’t it?
4. Letter W Activity
Teaching the letters is so much more fun if you create an interactive learning environment. Therefore most preschools add worksheets, sing songs, read stories, or have a show and tell for each letter.
Our watermelon printout, therefore, is a perfect letter W activity and can be used at home as well. Print out some free ABC Flashcards, let them color our watermelon coloring page, and teach them the letter W at home.
5. Learn About Fruits or Vegetables
As we learned above watermelons can be considered fruit or vegetables. So why not include them in your lessons about vegetables or fruits.
I also was surprised to learn that all parts of a watermelon can be eaten. Since they are not very tasty we actually don’t. But in Asia, they actually use the rind to stir-fry them. Interesting isn’t it?
So why not learn more about watermelons or include them in your fruit or vegetable curriculum?
6. Watermelon Party Invitation
Watermelons are a symbol of summer. With only a couple of steps, you can turn our watermelon slice template into a fun summer party invitation.
