Watermelon Wobba-Monster Fun

Drying, strong, and chilly wind came knocking today, with weather-changing from relatively warm and sunny yesterday to blistery cold winds and cloudy skies. A gentle reminder and a preview of winter ahead, without the moisture and snow. That, and preschool are hard on little ones. One of my kids had developed some cold sores, and the pediatrician suggested giving her watermelon and Popsicles to help keep her hydrated since she's not eating. I called the preschool to tell them that my kids are not going to be at school and heard that there are a number of kids with cold sores this season.

Anyway, I found a seedless watermelon at the store yesterday and made this fun little snack for the kids. One kid had only watermelon, the other loved green seedless grapes and tangerines, and I had all the raspberries. I couldn't figure out what I was creating when I went cutting into that watermelon, and I guess I needed something to cheer up the gloomy, grey skies today.
