Have Made It

Using a wide vegetable peeler will make this watermelon into a panda in no time!

  1. Wash the watermelon under cool running water and pat dry. Using the large kitchen knife slice off about 1/2” from the bottom of the watermelon to create a sturdy base.
  2. Cut a 90 degree wedge from the back of the watermelon so you have a panda face on the front and create a fruit bowl from the back of your carving. Scoop out the Watermelon and reserve to make a fruit salad.
  3. Use the dry erase marker to draw eyes, a nose and mouth. Use the channel knife to make a semi-circle design in the eye area. Carefully use a peeler or paring knife to peel away the top layer of the green rind to expose the white underneath, leaving the green just around the eyes, nose and mouth.
  4. Attach the blueberries to the eyes with toothpicks and line around the eyes with gold edible glitter to make them stand out more.
  5. Using the scraps make a small wedge of watermelon for your panda to munch on and make two semi-circle green ears and attach with toothpicks to the top of his head.
  6. Fill your “fruit bowl” with fruit salad and decorate around the carving with oriental themed props like lucky bamboo.
