Sarah, from the West Midlands, sent in this great watermelon pizza idea. Let’s take a look at it…

What did you do?

I cut a circular slice of watermelon, then the children topped it with yoghurt. Next they added fruit like strawberries, blueberries and freshly picked blackberries. Finally they sprinkled desiccated coconut on the top.

The boys said they liked it because it was tasty and thought it was an amazing idea as they like pizza and watermelon. They are even planing their next creation with other fruits.

Do you have any other projects planned?

Today’s activity is a truck and car wash tuff tray to go with “That’s not my truck “ book.
