Tips for Making a Torn Paper Watermelon Craft
We typically prefer to use cardstock when crafting as it’s a sturdier option. However, for some kids a light weight construction paper will be easier to tear into smaller pieces. Either option is great! A note on cardstock…some brands of cardstock are made as a WHITE core cardstock, meaning when you tear it there will be white in the middle rather than the solid color throughout. This is of course a perfectly fine paper to use, just something to be aware of when paper shopping or if you are surprised to see white while tearing.
Pre-cut Small Pieces of Paper
Younger kids might need help tearing small pieces of paper as it can be time-consuming. Instead, try pre-cutting small squares or rectangles of green and red paper. Then, separate them into containers or baskets to keep the workspace organized.
Apply Glue with a Glue Stick
Try using a glue stick instead of regular glue, as glue sticks are less messy. Add a small area of glue on your template and then add your paper working in sections.
