Is there anything better than a big watermelon in the summer months? We think not! Give the kids a little kitchen project to kick off your 4th of July, and summer season.

I saw this cute idea on the Women of Today blog last summer, and it quickly became my go-to for pool parties, afternoon snacks, and apps for the kids at summer bbq. These watermelon sparklers are so cute, easy to make, and a crowd pleaser.

Ingredients:

Method

STEP 1:

Cut your watermelon into 1” thick rings.

STEP 2:

Use your star cookie cutter to cut our each of the star shapes.

STEP 3:

Take your skewer and add blueberries - as many as you want - but leave room for the handle and the star.

STEP 4:

Top the skewer with your watermelon star and enjoy!
