We came up witht his Yodamelon for my now 6 year old Star Wars birthday party yesterday. This was a big hit with the kids (and adults) and you will love how easy this is to make! In my opinion this is a must have for a Star Wars party!
We found a good round watermelon at the store. We sliced off just a small slice from the bottom to get it to stand up and not roll around….
We then cut off a big piece in the back…
Then cut out pieces of the watermelon. We cut them in squares with a knife and then used a spoon to get out the watermelon deep in the back. Put the cut watermelon pieces back in. Take the cut off back piece of the watermelon and cut that in half. Secure half of that on the botton back of the watermelon with toothpicks so the watermelon pieces do not fall out. It will look like this…
Then take that other half piece and cut that in half to shape the ears. Take the two halves and round off to a point with your knife. Attach with tooth picks. Use your scraps to decorate the face and attach everything with toothpicks. The pupils on the eyes are 2 dark grape halves.
That’s it! Kids love watermelon and kids love Yoda…it’s a win win!
