Frozen Watermelon ‘Popsicles’

Okay, these aren’t really popsicles. They’re watermelon wedges frozen on sticks. But isn’t this a nice, cold way to eat your fruit? Leave the rind on, if you want the slices to look classic — or cut it off, if you want to make it easier to put the sticks in.

Cutting board
Sharp knife (adult needed)
Popsicle sticks
Baking sheet


1⁄4 small seedless watermelon


Wash your hands with soap and water, then gather all your equipment and ingredients and put them on a counter.

  1. Cut across the watermelon to make wedges about 1-inch thick.
  2. Carefully cut a slit into the rind of each wedge and put a popsicle stick into each slit.
  3. Arrange the wedges on the baking sheet so they’re not touching.
  4. Freeze until firm, at least 3 hours.

Let the pops soften at room temperature for 10 minutes before serving.
