Instructions
 

How to Cut a Watermelon into Cubes:

  • Cut your watermelon in half lengthwise. Then, cut each half in half to make 4 quarters of watermelon.
  • Take one of the quarters and make cuts from the top part of the melon all the way down to the rind. Make 1 inch slices from one side of the melon to the other side.
  • Take your knife and slice 1 inch strips down the length of the melon. (You are essentially making a crosshatch pattern on each quarter of the watermelon.)
  • After the cuts are made, start from one edge of the melon and cut along the rind. The cubes should fall out of the rind really easily!

How to Cut a Watermelon into Sticks:

  • Cut your watermelon in half lengthwise. Then, flip the watermelon over after cutting it in half so that the flat surface is facing down on the cutting board.
  • With half of the watermelon upside down on the cutting board, cut off the four edges to create a square. You then slice it the lengthwise about 1" apart. 
  • Once you have cut the entire melon lengthwise, cross cut it every 1". These sticks are fun to eat and much less messy.

How to Cut a Watermelon into Triangles:

  • Cut your watermelon in half lengthwise. Then, flip the watermelon over after cutting it in half so that the flat surface is facing down on the cutting board.
  • After placing half of the watermelon face down on the cutting board, cut the half one more time into quarters lengthwise. Then cut those quarters down the middle lengthwise into eighths.
  • Next crosscut the watermelon about 1" apart until you have cut the entire melon. Now, you've got watermelon triangles!
