MAKE SURE TO MAKETHIS WITH AN ADULT

Materials

1 Round watermelon
Knife
Sharp pencil or thin marker

Instructions

Using a round watermelon, slice off a piece approximately 4 inches down on the stem end. Set cut piece aside to use later for mouth guard.
Make a curved cut from one side of the melon to the other to cut out the face portion of the helmet. Hollow out the entire melon.
Take the piece that was set aside in step #1 and place cut side down. Place knife at the center of stem end and cut in half.
Take one half of cut piece and draw mouth guard grid with a sharp pencil or thin marker as shown in picture. Remove flesh and using a small knife, cut out grid design.
To assemble, place mouth piece on a plate. Place the helmet piece on top, pushing the mouthpiece ends towards the inside of the helmet. You may need to carve a little out of the helmet ends to fit the mouth grid comfortably.
Fill with fruit salad.
