Watermelon Checker Board

  • Heavy corrugated cardboard
  • Poster paint
  • Black permanent marker
  • Twelve watermelon seeds
  • Twelve squash seeds
Cut a circle about 14 inches wide from heavy corrugated cardboard. Paint the outer inch of the circle with green poster paint. Paint the inside of the circle red. Paint a thin white line where the two colors meet.

With a pencil, draw an 8 inch square in the red area. Mark off every inch on each side of the square. Connect the marks on opposite sides of the square, dividing it into sixty-four small squares.

With a permanent black marker, outline the large square. Color in every other small square to form a checkerboard. Draw on watermelon seeds. Use twelve black seeds from a watermelon and twelve white seeds from a squash as your game's playing pieces.
