Watermelon Flowers

8 Jul

kid friendly summer healthy snacks

For the 4th of july, I made star shaped watermelon cut-outs.  After using the big cookie cutter to make the stars, I was left with a lot of usable pieces of juicy watermelon, so I took out a set of mini cookie cutters and made flower shaped pieces for a play date snack.  They were a big hit – perfect bite-size for the girls to snack on.  Use any cookie cutter shape that you have on hand.  Don’t throw out the leftover scraps – puree them in the blender to make watermelon juice (one of my summer favorites – drink on its own or add to smoothies for a sweet, refreshing drink).
