Perfect for a Memorial Day or Fourth of July party or just to have as a sweet summer treat, this stars and stripes fruit skewers idea is easy to make and kid-friendly!
Wash the blueberries and cut the watermelon into slices that are about ¾ of an inch thick.
Don’t go much thinner because they may not stay on the sticks.
Use the star-shaped cookie cutter for perfectly easy star shapes.
Add a few blueberries to one end of the stick and then slide the stick into one of the corners for the stars.
Aiming for the middle so it will be balanced and stay in place, try to put the stick at least a 1/3 of the way into the melon.
Store chilled in the refrigerator, lying flat and covered.
Stand them up in a sturdy small vase or lay flat on a plate when ready to serve.
Optional: If you’d like to add a refreshing kick try adding my traditional fruit salad secret sauce – drizzle with a mixture of honey, lime juice and minced mint leaves.
