Kids' Project: How To Make Watermelon Juice Without a Blender

Recently, the kids had turned snacks time into a project.

They named it "How to Make Watermelon Juice Without The Use of A Blender".

A few benefits of this project:

1. Encourage bonding between the siblings 
2. Promote team work 
3. Enhance creativity. The children thought of creative methods to make the juice which they wanted without a blender. Projects created out of children's own initiatives are the best. 
4. Practise fine motor skills through mashing, scooping and pouring. 

Steps to do:

1. Eat the watermelon by scooping up to your fill
