My kids love watermelon. I bought a watermelon the other day and the boys were so excited. After slicing the watermelon I put a popsicle stick in the bottom of each slice. Carter thought this was so cool.
The first piece was eaten inside, then once I realized how juicy this melon was the rest were eaten outside. He was just as messy as he would have been if eating it with his hands, so don’t think the stick eliminates any mess.
