Inside: For those of you hoping to extend summer, check out these cute watermelon activities and crafts for preschoolers.

Here it is  … FALL.  And you’d think I’d be writing about pumpkins.  I mean, who doesn’t love Fall and Pumpkins … and Pumpkin Spice Lattes?  If you don’t … let’s not speak about it lest I become a little distant with you *wink*.

So, I would have written about Fall and Pumpkins, which I’ve done before like when I wrote the Welcome Fall Roundup last year or sharing pumpkin crafts and activities.

But, some people seem to want to extend summer a  little longer and are looking for watermelon activities and crafts for their kids.  Forgive us Floridians for being bitter about extending summer with you.  If you’re in Florida, you know that even though we’ve entered Fall, it will feel like summer for a few weeks to a month, and it only lasts a little while.

12 Adorable Watermelon Activities and Crafts for Preschoolers

When I think of Summer, I always think of Watermelons (and Strawberries).  What kid doesn’t just love watermelons?  My son doesn’t seem to, but he’s currently a picky eater.

Watermelons are sweet, cool, and refreshing … exactly what one needs to feel better about a hot summer day in Florida (as well as a thermostat set to 70 degrees all day with a fan on full blast).  At least, that’s my opinion on the matter.

But, we can’t sit and eat watermelon all day, can we?  And preschoolers aren’t always very good at spitting watermelon seeds either.  So, help foster their love of watermelons with these fun watermelon activities and crafts.
