What You'll Need

How We Did It

Fruit Magic Wands
We washed our grapes and berries and sliced our watermelon in half. My daughter was thrilled to see that our watermelon was of the pink variety. She chose the ribbon colors. I gave her large and small cookies cutters shaped like stars and hearts.

I sliced the watermelon into 1 to 1 1/2 inch slices and she went to work with cookie cutters.

We put all of our watermelon cut-outs onto a plate and I set up a workstation for her to put them together.

Starting with the pointy end of the skewer, she slid the star or heart shape up to the top, then began adding grapes and berries.

Younger children might need help with this part. The smaller berries were tricky to get on there.

Tip: If you're doing this project with very young kids, you can snip off the sharp end of the skewer. The fruit slides on just fine without it.

She chose a piece of ribbon and cut it off the roll.

I helped her tie the ribbons underneath the fruit and curl the edges of the ribbon with the scissor blade.

Tada! Fruit magic wands. These were a great dessert for a cookout. The kids could grab one after they finished their meals while the adults were still eating and chatting.
