When heading to the beach for the day with kids, we are inevitably found lugging fruit onto to the cutting board and chopping away. Fruit is a fantastic choice for the kids when we’re out in the sun; they are hungry all day and it’s a healthy choice. At the top of the list of my girls’ fruit choice is watermelon! It’s a universal favourite with all their friends and over time I’ve been found brushing sand off watermelon pieces after a child chooses a piece from the container. Finally I’ve found out how to cut a watermelon for kids to easily pick up!
This is super simple and when the watermelon is cut this way, it stores more in the bin and because it’s easier for the little ones to pick up there is less sand dropped onto other pieces.
How To Cut a Watermelon For Kids
Begin by slicing your watermelon in half.
Turn one half of the watermelon face down on a cutting board and begin making 1-2 inch thick slices. Turn the watermelon 90 degrees and repeat.You’ll have to use one hand to hold the watermelon slices together while making your cuts.
