Summer is in full swing, and one of our favorite summer treats is watermelon! We love biting into the juicy flesh. We love watermelon seed spitting contests. We love scooping watermelon out of its rind. So to celebrate the juicy deliciousness that is watermelon, I’m releasing a Watermelon Printables Pack that is now available for download.
Note: For more printables, see my Educational Printables page.
We are actually growing our own watermelon plant in our small garden this year. The plant has grown big, but has yet to flower or produce any watermelons. We are keeping our fingers crossed though!
My kids sure are anxious to enjoy some homegrown watermelon this summer. In the meantime, they have to make do with enjoying some of the activities in my Watermelon Printables Pack. 🙂
My Watermelon Printables Pack contains 73 watermelon worksheets and activities for kids ages 2 to 7. This pack is a great way for kids to practice basic skills while also dreaming of this luscious, red, summer fruit.
The activities in this pack cover a range of skills, including:
- shapes and sizes
- same vs. different
- fine motor
- math (number identification, counting, addition, subtraction)
- literacy (letter identification, alphabetical order, phonemic awareness, word searches)
Here is a look at some of the activities my kids have enjoyed so far. . .
I started them with some fine motor practice. XGirl practiced tracing the lines to help the girl get to the watermelon. I put the worksheet in her Crayola Dry Erase Activity Center so she could do it more than once.
I also gave XGirl this maze to work on.
QBoy also worked on a maze, but due to his developmental level I gave him a more complex maze than I gave XGirl. Nonethelss, I had him complete the maze using his Crayola Dry Erase Activity Center so that I could later give the worksheet to XGirl to use.
I am working really hard with XGirl on number identification. She can recognize numbers 0, 1, 2, and 3, but still struggles with numbers 4 and beyond. I used this watermelon puzzle as one tool to assist with this task.
I also gave her this watermelon seed counting activity. She had to put watermelons numbered 0 through 4 in order and then put “seeds” (in the form of dried kidney beans) on each watermelon to match the number. (The complete activities includes numbers 0-10.)
QBoy is already working on simple addition. He had little difficulty finding the sum for each of these problems, although he does need more practice with writing his numbers.
This was XGirl’s favorite activity so far. She had to count the seeds in each box and then trace the number below. She felt so grown up getting to write “real” numbers that she did this activity several times, using a different color marker each time.
QBoy still really enjoys my alphabet connect the dots printables, so I had him work on this one to create a drawing of a watermelon with a piece sliced out of it.
Here is a sneak peak at the 69 activities included in this pack:
