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


  1.  Cut the melons into slices around 1-2cm wide, or wider if desired. Cut the slices into bite-sized triangular pieces
  2. 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!)
  3. 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.
