We love to cut watermelon this way, because it’s really convenient for kids to grab a good piece of watermelon and hold it from the grid. No utensils needed here. And also, it’s looks pretty and fun when served on the table at the party or a play-date outside.
Here is a short video to show you how to cut a watermelon to look like a turtle.
Cut your watermelon in half. Use one half and place it on the cutting board “meat” part down. Then, start slicing watermelon in 2 inch stripes length wise, then do the same width wise. You should have watermelon sliced in small squares.
Cut the shapes of turtle head, legs and tail from the watermelon.
Invite kids and enjoy watermelon turtle. It’s the best!
Don’t forget to keep the watermelon in the fridge before cutting. Cold watermelon tasted way much better than hot one.
