Fun with Watermelon for Toddlers

Idea from Montessori Moments

Age: From 2 years old

Joshua is at a very fussy phase. He doesn't like any other fruits except banana and water melon. I got this idea from Lori from Montessori Moments, that instead of cutting the watermelon into pieces for your child, give him a full ring and let him have fun practising with...

... scooping out the flesh with a spoon (fine motor skills development)
... digging out the seeds (hand-eye coordination)
... separating the soft white seeds from the hard black ones (sorting skills)
... counting the seeds (numeracy skills)
... excavating it with his hands (touch sensory experience)
Today, Joshua (2Y4M8D) tried this activity for the first time and he preferred to concentrate on excavating the site though!!!
