Happy Watermelon Seed Spitting Day!

In celebration of this silly holiday we had a watermelon seed spitting competition. Here is our leader board. Congratulations to Isabella for spitting her seed 11 feet! One grown up even made it over 20 feet! We had so much fun that we are going to do it again today.



The watermelons were very juicy, so we used some of the juice to power this clock! Other acidic foods and drinks also work, such as potatoes, apples, lemons, and soda pop. This neat little clock can be found in our gift shop, so you can try your own experiments!
