    Hi Mark,
    this activity also works well with cut up pool noodles. If you choose the colour red and cut 5 cm discs, which you then half into semi-circles you have…. ‘watermelon’!

    The difference with this prop is that you have one piece of watermelon between the index fingers of 2 partners with the outside hands used to fire excess watermelon at others…..like mini fruit cannons!

    Of course this cannon works best if you’ve practiced before…so play a game of mexican wave ‘popcorn’ first with the group….by flicking the outside edges of the watermelon with your thumb and forefinger.
    Quick and easy fun….

      Yes, I too have used ‘finger snaps’ ( as I call them) for this activity, Bryn. And without the mass of a wooden toy block, you can normally build much longer bridges 🙂 Thanks for sharing.
