Fun with fruit

With all of this warm weather we’ve been having lately, I’ve been trying to keep my family hydrated. But my little ones balk at drinking plain water unless they are super hot and have been outside.

Outside all day or not, I still want to make sure that they have the hydration they need.

And what tastier way to get it than with fruit? Especially a water rich fruit like melon.

Last week we had some fun making “watermelon cookies”.

The best part, was that because it was something “fun” and “different”, my kids thought these were real treats – begging for Watermelon Cookies for dessert. We’ve also brought them camping and to the beach, nicely packed in coolers for a bit of refreshment in the hot sun.

Have you ever made cookie cutter fruit?
