We had a watermelon that we need to cut up so my 9 year old suggested that we make it into Oscar the Grouch for my 2 year old. We love to make fun watermelons and have made several of them that you can view HERE! I think he had a fantastic idea and we love how it turned out! We used all fruit with a hand full of almonds. This would be perfect for a Sesame Street party. You can cut out the back, scoop out the watermelon, and cut into pieces to serve. This way you still have the fun face on the front & the kids can get the watermelon from the back side.
Oscar the Watermelon
1 large Watermelon
Start out by drawing a mouth on the front then cut it out with a knife. We cut out a tongue from that piece of watermelon. We cut blueberries in half and lined them around the bottom & top. Make the eyes by cutting from the peel that you cut out for the mouth. We used blueberries for the pupils. Attach the eyes on with tooth picks. We attached almonds for the eyebrows using peanut butter. We covered a bucket with aluminum foil & placed a coffee can inside. Place Oscar the Watermelon on top and that is it!!
Here is my 9 year old with his fun Sesame Street creation…..
My 2 year old loved this & we hope your little Sesame Street fans love it as well!:)
