LTL TipLooking outside the box - that is, the Lift the lid lunchbox!

As celebrations subside from our little girl’s first birthday, I wanted to sharea fun watermelon treat.  It’s perfect weather for cold about a happy face cold watermelon! 

To make a happy face watermelon:

-  cut the top off a whole watermelon

-  cut down and around edge of watermelon flesh (knife vertical to help with the next step)

-  scoop out all watermelon flesh and place in a bowl – use a melon ball scoop to create two watermelon balls for centre-piece of flowers and dice remaining watermelon flesh

-  use a small sharp knife to cut out flower shapes from watermelon lid

-  attach watermelon balls to flowers using a toothpick (cut one end of the toothpick off before inserting)

-  next cut out eyes and mouth shapes

-   place all watermelon back into carving and enjoy your happy face watermelon chilled.

Enjoy a watermelon carving for some added fun at your next summer celebration.
