Make a Watermelon Frog

Hippity hop, this friendly frog will make your
party pop!

Green grapes
3 cups fruit salad (we used watermelon
and green grapes)
Red sour strip candy

Green dry erase marker
Ice cream scoop or melon baller
Assorted froggie decor (optional)


Wash your watermelon and pat dry.

Cut one end of the watermelon so that it will sit flat on the surface, making sure to angle the watermelon to the frog is facing forward.

With the dry erase marker, draw the frog’s mouth on the watermelon. Cut out, reserving the rind to carve the frog’s eyes and feet.

Scoop out the flesh of the watermelon or use melon baller and reserve for fruit salad.

Draw frog eyes and feet in the set aside rind and cut out with a paring knife.

Insert toothpick into side of frog foot and directly into side of watermelon. Repeat on the other side.

Place toothpick in bottom of rind eye and insert into top of watermelon. Repeat on the other side.

Using the same technique with the toothpicks, insert into grapes and middle of frog eye. Repeat.

Fill frog’s mouth with fruit salad.

Curl a candy strip coming out of frog’s mouth and place with a toothpick for tongue.

Garnish carving with simple decor (optional).
