watermelon playdough and juice

Our nearest neighbor swears by the health benefits of watermelon juice and has multiple chest freezers full of it to get him through the winter.  So, when he gave us an enormous watermelon, we, of course, had to juice some of it.  I have two quarts in the freezer and one in the fridge and am not even half way through the melon yet.  It is delicious!  We used some of the seeds to add to watermelon playdough, which turned out great and was a lot of fun for Sylvia and Ayla.

 We improvised a bit with some of the ingredients, but the texture came out exactly like store-bought playdough.

  When Camille got off of the schoolbus, there was a lot of this...
 and excitement about this abandoned nest under our pinetree...
and now I'm off to help crack and peel some acorns.  We will have enough for acorn flour one of these days... Maybe.
Not sure yet what else the day will bring...
