Looking for something fun to do with the kids this summer? Try watermelon bowling.


  • Round watermelon
  • 6 empty water bottles
  • hot pink paint
  • black marker


Make the pins by putting a tablespoon of hot pink paint into the bottle. Close the lid and shake the bottle to coat the inside. Use the black marker to draw seeds on the outside. Repeat the process for each of the bottles and set them up into a triangle. Take turns using the watermelon as a bowling ball to knock down the pins. To make it more challenging fill the water bottles with a bit of sand or dirt.
