Watermelon sticks, perfect for little hands.  A finger food perfect for picnics or potlucks #Watermelon, #KitchenTips, #Summer, #Food, #CleanEating, #DIYMy kids LOVE watermelon, we tend to eat a lot of it during the summer.  We like to cube it, I shared how to cube a whole watermelon in just minutes last week.  BUT that is not always a great way to eat it as a finger food at a picnic or on the go… but the BIG slices tend to be hard for little hands to hold and little mouths to bite.  SO that is when we came up with Watermelon Sticks…. the perfect solution for bite sized watermelon on the go for little hands.  Or if you are feeding a large group and need smaller portions.

This is not only handy for children, but those that have arthritis or other difficulties with their hands/grasp ability.
