Kids will have fun making (and eating!) these pretty, delicious fruit flowers. A great snack or picnic project.

Ingredients

  • 1 watermelon
  • 1 cantaloupe
  • 1 honeydew melon
  • 1 bunch each green and red grapes
  • Handful of blueberries

Equipment needed

  • Wooden skewers
  • Large and small sized cookie cutters

Preparation

  1.  

    Turn the watermelon on its side. Cut a small slice off one end of the watermelon. This will make the melon stand up straight. Cut off a third of the watermelon from the other end.
  2. Cut the removed end of the watermelon into 1/2-inch slices; cut the honeydew melon and the cantaloupe into 1/2-inch slices. Use small and large flower cookie cutters to cut flowers from the melon slices.
  3. Slide four grapes onto a wooden skewer. Slide a large melon flower onto the skewer. Slide a smaller melon flower on top. Put a grape or blueberry on the end. Make a lot of flowers from the fruit. Mix and match melon, grapes, and blueberries.
  4. Set the watermelon on a plate on the smaller cut end. Stick the skewers into the top of the watermelon for a fruity flower bouquet!

Serving Suggestion

Use different kinds of cookie cutters. Try hearts or stars. Get creative with your fruit too! Try kiwis, strawberries, or pineapples.
