Watermelon is an obvious part of the summer for my family.  When we have a barbeque, we are always eating watermelon.  Need a game in the water?  We grease up a watermelon and play watermelon football!  There are tons of fun things you can do with watermelon and luckily, it’s everywhere!!!  I’ve heard a few different tricks to finding the perfect watermelon like looking for bee sting holes on it because then you know it’s sweet, but it usually turns into a big guessing game for us.  (Let me know if you have any tricks.)  Fortunately for us, we’ve rarely landed with a bad watermelon and if we do, there are a lot more things to do with it than eat!  :)  This month we have a great Family Challenge for you! It’s time to have some summer fun!

The Challenge: Watermelon!

Eat it, play a game with it, create something with it, or do a craft about it. Whatever you do, have some fun with your family, take a picture, if possible, and share what you did with us!

Here are some fun ideas I found on the web:

Watermelon Toss, Spitting , Eating Competitions
