Watermelon printing

  • Cut a potato in half, then half again to make a melon-shaped wedge.
  • Dip the potato in red poster paint and print it randomly over a plain piece of paper or cotton.
  • Use a cotton bud to add tiny black dots for the seeds.
  • Use a paint brush and green paint to add the rind.
  • A great activity to do after reading ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’
