Here’s What You Need

Here’s your watermelon craft supply list (This post contains affiliate links to the products mentioned. Read my disclosure policy for more information):

Step 1: Download and Print the Free Template

Download the Free Watermelon Printable. You will be stapling the template to sheets of colored paper to cut out the shapes.

Step 2: Staple and Cut Out the Craft Shapes

Once you have the print outs, staple them to construction paper and cut out the shapes you need.

Note: If you want to make this craft with a group of kids, you can staple the template to up to 10 sheets of copy paper, 5 sheets of cardstock or 5-8 sheets of construction paper.

So, did you know, you can staple together 10 pieces of copy paper and cut out 10 shapes at a time?! That’s my SECRET to fast & easy crafting. Stapling the paper is very important because it makes sure it doesn’t move as you cut. The more staples the better. Cardstock is the thickest so you may only be able to cut 5 sheets at a time.

Tip: While you’re cutting, if you cut off all parts of the pages that have staples, make sure to re-staple the sheets that are left. Whenever you’re cutting multiple sheets at a time, make sure they are always stapled together!

Step 3: How to Assemble

The kids will just need to glue it all together and make it their own!

  1. Glue the red part of the watermelon onto the green part
  2. Personalize them with seeds, a face, and I even used a green marker to add detail to the rind
  3. If adding hands – Cut out the hands
  4. Cut pipe cleaner in half
  5. Tape pipe cleaners to back of craft
  6. Tape hands to pipe cleaners (arrange however you want)
  7. Don’t forget to put your name on the back

And you’re finished!

This is a great craft for summer time or a picnic. And it’s easy enough for preschool, elementary, Scouts or just a fun craft at home idea.
