For a great activity and fun treat make a fruit flower bouquet.

  • Use cookie cutters to create flower shapes out of cantaloupe, honeydew and watermelon.
  • Use a melon baller to make contrasting center balls.
  • Tread the ball, then the melon flower and an additional ball onto the bottom to hold the flower on top on to a skewer.
  • Add fresh sprigs of mint for the foliage and place in a basket, vase or cup.
