When I think of summer I think of the warm sun, the beach, children playing outside, picnics, and of course eating lots of watermelon. I also think it’s a time that I need to come up with some extra activities to keep the kids having fun, and learning. On this particular day I had scooped out the middle of the watermelon for a fruit salad and I knew there was something cool we could do with the rest of it.
Watermelon Sensory Play
What I came up with was easy and super fun.
All you need is 2 ingredients:
Baking soda (I used a 1 lb. box), and Vinegar (as much as you want)
Feel free to add a couple drops of watercolors or food coloring for extra excitement.
Sit back and let the kids explore and enjoy some fizzy watermelon science sensory play.
Summer should be filled with enjoyment. Make it easy for yourself yet thrilling for the children. I hope you enjoyed our watermelon play and get the chance to try it out for yourself. The children will love the squishy, bubbling fun!!!
