Worldwide watermelon

Readers of this blog will know that I recently dabbled in a little melon-foolery when I created a hand carved watermelon shark for my nieces and nephews.

Well since that pivotal moment I just can't look at a melon without thinking about carving it and last week I indulged my dark side and took a knife to a sweet little water melon in the name of my love of all things global.

I carved a land and water globe by sketching freehand with a permanent marker and then using a sharp vegetable knife to carve out the sea area. it's not rocket science but it's a little tricky.

I accidentally sliced away a few Caribbean islands and the equator is sitting a little on the low side but I would go so far as to say that it is geographically more accurate than the Montessori land and water globe I bought from China.

Have you had a go at this yet?
