Prep time:plus freezing time
Skill level: Easy peasy
Costs: Cheap as chips
These easy-to-prepare lollies are a healthy way for kids to cool down after running around all afternoon. Not only are they refreshing, but they’re fun to make; let the kids use cutters to cut the melon into different shapes!
- ½ watermelon
- ½ cantaloupe melon
- ½ honeydew melon
Try using different fruit like chunks of banana or grapes for more colourful rockets
- Cut the melons into slices around 1-2cm wide, or wider if desired. Cut the slices into bite-sized triangular pieces
- Put the fruit pieces on the lolly stick or skewer alternating each melon until you reach the top (don’t forget to leave a little handle at the base!)
- Line a tray with parchment paper. Lay all the lollies down flat on the tray and freeze for a minimum of 3 hours or overnight.
