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:
- Cut the watermelon into slices, and then wedges.
- With a sharp knife, cut a slit through the green rind.
- Push a craft stick through the slit into the melon, leaving enough sticking out to form a handle
- 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!
Check out the video below for another great way to serve watermelon to a crowd of guests.
