Practical Life - Watermelon Snack

It wouldn't be summer without watermelon!

I prepared this practical life work for James after seeing how much he enjoys using a melon baller in our spooning activities.

As with all of our activities, we remove the items from the tray and set the table for the work. James needed to use the melon baller to remove parts of the watermelon and then transfer them to the small serving plate. He then stuck toothpicks into each ball.

Offering a snack to me and daddy - practical life and grace & courtesy all in one lesson!


~Thank you for your comments!~

I love melon ballers! Makes cooking even more exciting when it makes a ball, too cute.

What kind of mat are you using? I like how it folds.

Great practical life activity! I'm embarrassed though! He uses a melon baller better than me! :)

You guys must try mashing (or blending) water melon and freezing in ice lolly molds. So yummy!
