A Slice of Summer

Today was Mr. One's last day of preschool (sniff, sniff...) and so we are "officially" in summer at our house.

I love summer, especially for all the wonderful fruits that are in season.  One of our favorites?  Watermelon! 

Truly a slice of summer.

I had to post a cute and easy art project that my preschooler brought home earlier this week.

Watermelon Shakers:

You will need:
paper plate
dried beans (or any other small item that makes noise, small beads, rice, etc.)

Color the paper plate with crayons to resemble a watermelon round.
Fold in half.
Staple along edge about half-way.
Add your beans or other noise makers.
Staple rest of folded edge.
Turn on some music and shake your groove thang!

Then, slice up a real watermelon and eat up.

Happy summer friends!
