You will need:

  • Watermelon
  • Lychees and red grapes for eyes
  • Cocktail sticks
  • Fruit to fill the watermelon shark (try grapes, strawberries, orange segments etc)
  • Knife for carving

How to make the watermelon shark:

  • Cut a wedge out of the watermelon to make the mouth.
  • Save three slices from the cut out wedge and cut these into triangles to make shark fins.
  • Hollow out some of the watermelon from the wedge – enough to be able to add in fruit.
  • Cut triangle teeth into the edges of the shark’s mouth.
  • To make the eyes, press a red grape into a lychee and fix onto the shark’s head with a cocktail stick.
  • Fill the sharks mouth with pieces of fruit.

Have fun!
