Melon Stamps

Today's activity is an oldie but goodie. It was a good reminder for me how much fun can be had with cookie cutters and food. Melons are in season right now and soft enough for your toddler to cut through. Pick any shape and maybe they will even try something new!

Recipe

TOOLS

  • Knife
  • Cookie Cutters (I like mini ones)

INGREDIENTS

  •  Watermelon
  • Cantaloupe
  • Honeydew

STEPS

Wash hands

20+ seconds. Happy birthday twice.

Water and soap.

 

Parent Step: Cut slices of melon

Using a sharp knife, cut cross sectional rounds of each melon. 

Cookie cut them out!

Let your kid take cookie cutters and cut out lots of shapes. Watch them interact with the food. 

Questions to ask:

1. What color is this?

2. Can we count them together? How many have you done?

3. Does watermelon feel different to melon when you mush it?
