This is a simple, fun activity for preschoolers, that creates some wonderful watermelons, perfect for home made wrapping paper or just as a standalone fun piece of artwork in itself. Once you've set up the potatoes and the paint, your little one can just have a go on their own.

Picture perfect fruity art


Time: 15 minutes includes time to cut the potato to size.
Age: Under 5's
Level: Easy



Materials
1 potato
Green paint, pink/red paint
Black felt tip
Paper (white preferably)
1 x paint brush

Method
Cut the potato into a couple of crescent shapes (you may need to trip the potato once it has been cut into half to create a the right shape.)

Make a watermelon shape out of potato which will be your stamp


Dip the potato into the red/pink paint and press onto paper. Repeat until the paper is covered in juicy watermelon shapes.

Kids will love seeing how their pink stamps turn into watermelons by adding a green edge


Go around the curved edge of the watermelon shape with the green paint (use paintbrush). This will create the green skin of the watermelon.

Paint around the pink stamp


When the pink part of the watermelon is dry, add the seeds on, by dotting with a black marker pen or felt tip.

Add the seeds


Your art work is now complete. If you are using as wrapping paper, make sure the paint is completely dry.
