We eat a lot of watermelon in this house. I cut it into thin, skinny slices and leave the peel on for the kids to hold on to (and then throw randomly into the garden). The kids are always bugging me to cut the slices a bit thicker but the thought of the extra juice and mess always stops me. Then one time I thought I would make them as difficult as possible to actually eat, just to try and stop them requesting bigger slices.
It didn't work. They loved them this big. Even Sophie.

I was giving the kids watermelon the other day and was told off quite soundly because I cut it into catering size pieces. You will have to grow them next year. Maybe you could buy shares in a watermelon farm.
