Watermelon Songs and Activities Featuring the Watermelon Balloon Ball

Last fall I enjoyed presenting our products at our local tea shop, Maggie Mae’s Tea Room, and a customer gave me a great idea to make a watermelon balloon ball for the summer. I found this beautiful fabric and created this fun watermelon ball!  You can purchase one here for $15 (only four available, but will hopefully have more soon!)

Leave a comment below on how you would use the watermelon balloon ball or who you would use it with,and I will randomly draw a winner on  June 25! 



Watermelon Balloon Ball

So now for fun some ideas to enjoy this unique balloon ball!

The Watermelon Patch Song (found here)

Sung to: “Are you Sleeping?”

Watermelon, (Make a circle with your arms.)
On the vine, (Curve hands and arms beside body.)
On the vine,
Sweet and red and juicy, (Rub your tummy.)
Sweet and red and juicy,
Please be mine! (Palms together as though pleading.)
Please be mine!

Watermelon, (Make a circle with your arms.)
Thump, thump, thump, (Make a thumping movement with thumb and middle finger.)
Thump, thump, thump,
I think you are ready- (Point, resting finger on your temple.)
I think you are ready-
Big and plump! (Make a circle with your arms.)
Bug and plump!

Catch the Watermelon

Gather children in a circle around the adult leader. Toss the watermelon ball in the air and call one child’s name. That child must catch the balloon before it touches the ground. If the child succeeds, she gets to toss the balloon and call the next name. Great for name recognition!

Musical Watermelon

This watermelon song by Tom Rosenthal is too fun! How about playing musical watermelon? Pass the ball around while the music plays. In this version, the one holding the ball when the music stops – is out! Who will be left with it?
