Watermelon Heart Kabobs

Valentine's or birthday fun with fruit kabobs

Last Updated on

We are wrapping up our Valentine fun at the site with Watermelon Heart Kabobs!  I happen to be the mom that’s signed up for the fruit share this year and we decided to give our Valentine’s treat a little heart :)….

These are great for classroom parties, after school snacking fun or birthday parties and they are super duper easy.

What do you need?

Watermelon

Mini heart cookie or fondant cutter (approximately 2″ in width)

Small skewers or cake/candy pop sticks

Knife

Cutting board

1.  Measure the slices of watermelon to match the width of the cookie/fondant cutter you are using.  The slices should be slightly less than the utensil you are using in width, but wide enough to skew without them breaking.

2.  Simply cut hearts out of the watermelon slices.  I was able to yield 3 hearts per slice of watermelon; although it will depend on the wedge sizes.  This is a perfect step for kids of all ages to assist in helping.

3. Skew the hearts and serve!  We skewed three watermelon hearts per kabob for our share….

4. Enjoy this nice refreshing treat!

Watermelon: In the northeast I have been able to purchase fairly good size quarter lengths of watermelon for a few dollars.  I needed two quarters to create enough kabobs for approximately 20 people, with a total cost of under $7 making this activity an affordable share.

Also, watermelon is one of the easiest fruits to create shapes and designs for fruit serving fun.
