Are your children tired of the same old fruit in a bowl? Try this one for size. Cut the ends off a melon. Cut into 1/2 inch thick slices and with a 2 inch metal cookie cutter, cut different shapes. Also, by using a fruit baller, you can make flowers by scooping out little circles of the same fruit or one of a different colour.
This makes the fruit a lot of fun to look at and to eat. If your children are a little older get them to help cut out the fruit.
