Watermelon Men


Above is a photograph of my latest little project I did with my children, Watermelon cut out with cookie cutters!

I saw a photograph on Pinterest of some Watermelon shaped into stars and thought what a great idea for kids healthy snacks! I will give credit to the blogger who gave me this idea, their link is thislittleproject.blogspot.com The photo that inspired me is below, don't they look great!.



Here are my instructions, which are very simple to follow.

Step1:  Slice the watermelon so that they are just the right thickness for your cookie cutters, a lot of cutters have different depths!
Step 2: Press your cookie cutters into the slices and then remove the cut out pieces.

Step 3: Don't waste any of the remaining watermelon, either use some small cookie cutters for other shapes or just cut the remaining parts into small pieces and serve in a bowl.

Step 4: Eat and enjoy!

I hope you enjoyed this fun post, this is great for even the youngest children to do, my 4 year old was able to cut out the shapes easily and really loved joining in with me and her siblings. The children had much more fun eating the watermelon cut into shapes!

So go and make some use of all those cookie cutter shapes you have, I am sure the children and adults will love this as much as my children did. This would be an ideal project for any parties you have planned.
