We used a potato to make the prints on long sheets of freezer paper using pink washable paint. I think it's kind of weird that we used a potato to make a watermelon print, but whatever! It worked well!
Emily LOVES to stamp, so she thought this was so much fun! Cover the paper with pink watermelon wedges.
Next, add some green paint for the rind. The younger ones might need a bit of help with this step.
Here she is adding all the rinds to the watermelons...
To add the seeds, use the opposite end of a paintbrush dipped in some black paint. At this point, since Emily was obviously having so much fun, I couldn't resist making some wrapping paper of my own!
Wrap up your gift with your special handmade wrapping paper!!
