Kids in the Kitchen-Watermelon Shapes

Happy Monday! I'm popping in to share a quick idea for a fun activity to do with children in the kitchen. The prep is as easy as getting out your cookie cutter stash and cutting a watermelon! Have kids use cookie cutters to cut fun shapes out of the watermelon. We used some Christmas cookie cutters for a fun Christmas in July snack for the pool last week. Any cookie cutters would work and it excites the kids to help, and they are more likely to be interested in eating what they have helped prepare/make. I love that this activity is a good one to get young kids involved in the kitchen, and a great sensory activity.

 We also cut some of the watermelon in the shape of trees. I placed them in a large container and put it in the freezer for several hours. Ice cold watermelon is so refreshing. We took our container out of the freezer and headed straight to the pool. We had plenty to share with friends, and it was a hit on a hot summer day.

What is your favorite summer treat? What are some of your favorite ideas for getting kids involved in the kitchen?
