Watermelon Fun for Kids
How did you celebrate National Watermelon Day? What? You didn’t even know it was this week? No worries. We’ve got you covered with a couple of really delicious watermelon treats and fun kids games.
Watermelon is refreshing to eat (try this delicious watermelon salad!). But who knew how much fun you can have with it besides?
Watermelon Eating Contest
Find out who can eat two slices of watermelon the fastest. Hint: This is a great activity for poolside, since there will be lots of juice on the eaters!
Watermelon Seed Spitting Competition
See who can spit out the most seeds in a set amount of time, or who can spit a seed the farthest.
It's a guaranteed source of crazy entertainment. Use baby oil or vegetable oil to grease up a large watermelon, and then throw it in the center of the pool. Blow a whistle, and then have two teams enter a swimming pool. The teams then kick, push or swim with the watermelon in an effort to get the watermelon to the opposing team’s side of the pool while the opposing team tries to do the same.
Watermelon Roll Race
Line up participants and their watermelons at the start line, after the starting whistle blows race the watermelons by rolling them along the ground towards the finish line.
Gather everyone up for this country line dance “Watermelon Crawl” to the song by Tracy Byrd and see who has the best moves.
