Watermelon on a Stick — No Mess!

Today I’ve got a quick post with a quick and easy idea:  Watermelon on a stick! Turn this sticky snack into a portable treat.

Watermelon on a Stick-- All the yummy flavor without the sticky mess! {OneCreativeMommy.com} #familyreunion

I love watermelon, but I don’t love the sticky mess dripping down my arms!  (Okay–I’m not quite that messy, but my youngest kiddos are!) I discovered this idea last year at a church activity.  We had a picnic-style dinner, and it was so easy to grab a slice of watermelon without getting messy!

Here’s how to do it:

  1. Cut the watermelon into slices, and then wedges.
  2. With a sharp knife, cut a slit through the green rind.
  3. Push a craft stick through the slit into the melon, leaving enough sticking out to form a handle
  4. Serve it at a huge gathering or to your favorite kiddos!

I had to laugh this morning.  After working on this post, I saw this same idea on another website!  I guess great minds think alike!

  3. Now that’s a fun idea! I love watermelon but not really a fan of the mess. This is so much easier than cutting it into chunks! Thanks for sharing.

  8. What a cute idea!

  9. That is just inspired. My kids love watermelon but everything just gets in a big old sticky mess when they try and eat it. I’ll have to give this a try instead.
