Ever wonder how to cut a Watermelon in an easy, quick way that is easy for kids to eat it?  I have a 3 and 4 year old in the house and they LOVE Watermelon so I decided to cut my Watermelon into kid friendly sticks which is surprisingly less messy.  The process is so easy and you’ll wonder why you never though of this before!  Tip: When picking your Watermelon be sure it has a yellow patch a.k.a. “the ground spot” that means it’s ripe and juicy.

We chose a personal sized seedless watermelon to make this easy
