How to Make

  1. Cut a semi-circle shape out of green foam sheet (draw around a cup to help you get the shape). Cut a slightly smaller semi-circle from red foam sheet. Stick together with glue.
  2. Stick your wiggly eyes towards the top of the red semi-circle. Then, draw a smile under the eyes with a felt tip pen.
  3. Use the black felt tip pen to make dots on the red semi-circle. These will be your melon seeds.
  4. Finally, choose a lollipop stick and glue the watermelon face on to it. Allow to dry before you play with your fruit puppet.
