According to Wikipedia:

The exploding watermelon stunt or exploding watermelon challenge involves wrapping rubber bands around a watermelon until the pressure of the rubber bands causes the watermelon to explode in a dramatic or spectacular fashion. Though previous video iterations of the event have proved popular, on April 8, 2016, the website BuzzFeed streamed the stunt live on Facebook.

This was a very messy, but fun activity that our whole family, friends, and neighbors enjoyed! We have exploded watermelons a couple of summers now, and it’s the perfect way to close it out with a bang!

Supplies needed
Watermelon (we found the smaller, round ones explode faster.)
Several bags of thick rubber bands
Eye Protection (such as goggles or sunglasses)
Bowl to hold the watermelon
Chalk or other activities to keep children entertained during the long process
Time and patience…
