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 bought with your SNAP dollars? 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


  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.

Freeze until firm, at least 3 hours.
