Watermelon Seed Counting
This is a wonderful activity to work on one-to-one correspondence, fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination.
- Red and Green (and yellow if you want too!) construction paper
- Dry erase marker
- Black beans
- Using the four corners of the red paper, cut a “wedge” of watermelon.
- Trace the same length in the green construction paper for the “skin” of the watermelon.
- Glue the "skin" and your "wedge" together.
- Laminate and cut out.
- Set them out and write a number on each.
- Encourage your child to add the same amount of black beans, aka “seeds,” to each slice.
- Erase them and begin again!
