How to Make Heart Watermelon Shapes

We made these cute heart watermelon shapes for dinner one night and the kids thought it was so great!  I think they taste better to the kids when they are in a different shape than anticipated.  They are very simple to make and you can use the waste around the edges for your next smoothie.

Using a large cutting board and sharp knife, simply cut the ends of the watermelon so you have a flat bottom (don’t we all wish we had a flat bottom!), then cut the watermelon in slices like a gigantic O.  Then use a small-ish cookie cutter to cut out the heart shapes.  Serve and enjoy.

This would be really fun for a fruit salad or just for a cute side dish.
