Fruit bowl for summer fun with the kids and adults alike.

Total Time: 1 hour

Yield: 6 to 8

Source: saw it at another party!


  • one whole watermelon
  • blueberries
  • grapes
  • bananas
  • pineapple
  • whatever fruit YOU like


  1. Wash your entire watermelon, then cut one slice out of the bottom to stabilize the watermelon so it can stand up on an angle
  2. Carve out a wedge (the open mouth) from a side of the watermelon and use an apple peeler to remove the thin green skin along the carved wedge section.
  3. Cut a zig-zag design in the skinned, carved opening with a small paring knife for teeth.

  5. Scoop out the watermelon 'inners' and save for the fruit salad.
  6. Stick two toothpicks through the center of two blueberries and insert them on to the shark. You can even use left over watermelon rind to make a top dorsal and two side fins

  9. Mix watermelon fruit with your favorite fruit and place it back in the shark's mouth. Add a few gummy fish to the mix, just for fun!
