We’ve been playing our Watermelon Seed Matching Game and reading The Watermelon Seed by Greg Pizzoli. It’s such watermelon fun!
The Watermelon Seed is such a cute book! The crocodile has eaten watermelon since he was baby (chomp, slurp, burp). He loves it for breakfast, loves it for lunch and, you guessed it, loves it for dinner. But one day, he swallows a seed (gulp). What will happen?!
It goes through some pretty silly scenarios.
I asked my kiddos, “How many seeds do you think he has swallowed since he was a baby?” They looked at me for a second.
My son said, “I think…100!” “Oh my! That’s a lot of seeds, son!” We both giggled.
I thought it would be fun to do a Watermelon Seed Matching Game to help my kiddos with counting and pairs. So, I made a simple watermelon craft and turned it into a game. Watch the video below to see how to make it (steps are typed out below too):
