Fruit skewers are a super fun and easy snack for all your summer entertaining needs – and the secret is in the cookie cutter! Here's how!

  • Peel and slice a banana.
  • Wash some blueberries and strawberries, if you have them.
  • Slice your watermelon into 1-inch think flat slices.
  • Using a small star cookie cutter, cut out star-shaped pieces of your watermelon.
  • Thread the fruit alternately on the skewer, making sure to put a star watermelon piece in the middle and at the top of each skewer.

These will surely be a hit, and the kids might actually eat some fruit! Score!
