Watermelon Ship





Materials:

1. 1 large watermelon
2. A handful of toothpicks
3. 3-6 satay sticks
4. 2 chopsticks

Directions:

1. Make a flat base by cutting away the bottom curve of the watermelon lengthwise.

2. Cut the watermelon into half lengthwise.

3. Cut out 4 layers of the half watermelon, and then cut them into half, giving 8 pieces in total.

4. Arrange the cut pieces in stairs on both ends of the watermelon and secure with toothpicks, toothpicks with flag as decoration or satay sticks decorated with desired fruits such as strawberries and blueberries.

5. Poke two holes on the bottom curve of the watermelon cut out earlier and stick a chopstick through it to make the sail for the ship.

6. Scatter the remaining fruits such as strawberries, blueberries, melons etc. as desired to make a bed of sea.

7. Put a LEGO man on the front of the ship as captain of the ship. (One of the kids commented that the ship lacked a captain. In the future, we will put a LEGO man on it :-))

Cut the watermelon into half lengthwise.

Additional Information:
One of the Danish moms made this for the kids' snack time in the kindergarten, and we got the inspiration from her :-) Daddy made this on 6 September 2014 as our contribution to the Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival potluck that we will be going.
