This simple recipe is a great way to introduce your child to the science of freezing! Ask them to guess what will happen when they pop the watermelon slices in the freezer – this will help them learn other key scientific skills, like observing and predicting results. For older children, try drawing and writing recipe card, so they can make these slices again in future.
