Here's a fun idea to keep your kids busy WHILE they make their own snack -- no knives or heat involved. Cut open and seed the melons first, then step back and let your children do the work! You will need a melon baller and some wooden skewers (or metal skewers). Makes 6 frozen melon kebabs. (But remember -- you can increase the number of kebabs by using more melon!)
*Use any type of melon! We used watermelon and cantaloupe because those were available to us. Honeydew melons are great too, or use this as an opportunity to try some lesser-known melon varieties such as sprite melon, canary melon, or Korean melon!
*The amount of melon you use will depend on how many kebabs your children want to make. For us, 1/4 of a medium-size watermelon and 1/2 of a cantaloupe were plenty.
*Having a summer party in the near future? Give the kids the job of making this easy summer snack for their friends or party guests!
