6 Sweet Watermelon Snacks

Aug 3, 2016

In the spirit of National Watermelon Day, we've got six sweet and simple snacks that contain everyone's favourite summer fruit. 

1. Rainbow Fruit Wands

Use cookie cutters on slices of watermelon to make these fruit wands extra special!

2. Watermelon Pizza

Food that looks like other food is the best kind of food, especially for kids. This one is so easy and the kids will freak out about it.

3. All-Fruit Watermelon Pops

Ditch sugary popsicles for a day and try making these. They contain 100% fruit, and they're delicious.

4. Two-Ingredient Watermelon Slushies

Who doesn't love a slushie on a hot day? And if you want to take it up a notch, add a splash of your favourite tipple to make grown-up slushies!

Two glasses filled with watermelon slush and bright straws. Slices of lime and watermelon are sitting on the rim of each glass.

5. Little Fruit Ladybugs

Your littlest littles will get a kick out of these adorable bugs.

Rounds of watermelon topped with blueberries to make the ladybug dots. The heads are made of cherries with small dots of yogurt for eyes.

6. Cucumber Melon Salad

Because there is melon in it, this is a salad your kids might actually eat. Maybe. Regardless, it's a great option to take along on picnics or for barbeque dinners and comes together really quickly.
