Foam Watermelon DIY Kid’s Craft Supplies:
Step 2. Next grab your pink and green craft foam & scissors. Go ahead and have children cut the craft foam into 1 inch wide stripes, then into one inch squares. Remember the squares don’t have to be perfect. Separate them into two separate color piles.
Step 3. Starting with the green squares, have children remove the paper backing on each piece of adhesive foam and then place it on the rim of the paper plate halves. When the rim is completely covered, go ahead and take the pink squares, remove the backing and then place in the inner part of the paper plate. Repeat for each paper plate piece until you have the look of a watermelon.
So let’s grab our supplies and carve out some “naturally sweet” craft time to make these pretty awesome watermelon DIY crafts today! Happy crafting and celebrating these last few weeks of summer, my friends!!!
