Melon airplane

By Gosia

Preparation time:   Servings: 1

Few days ago, my daughter went to the Aviation museum with her classmates. They had a visit of the museum, listened to the stories about the aviation and made some cute plane crafts. Back home, my daughter was so excited she even said she wanted to be a pilot when she grows up! She kept talking about that trip for hours and played with her plane. So I asked her if she wanted to make a plane for her snack; you guessed right - the answer was yes. So here it is: our snack plane with heart shaped windows, pretty unusual for a plane, but cute and yummy:)

  • 1 slices of honey melon
  • 1 slice of ham
  • 2 dried cranberries
  • 1 biscuit stick
  • 1 Babybel cheese
  • 1 dried blueberry or raisin

Did you know that the design and planning process, including safety tests, can last up to four years for small airplanes or longer for larger planes?


Step1 Using a knife, cut a drop-like shape from the melon to make the main part of the plane. Cut also two rounded rectangles to make the plane's wings and a small one to make his tail. Cut two heart shapes and drop-like shape from ham using a knife or a cookie cutter . Cut a flower shape from the Babybel cheese using a cookie cutter . Then, cut it in three parts to make three flower shapes. You may squeeze them a bit to obtain more 'cloud' shape.Melon airplane snack for kids step1

Step2 Place the main part of the plane on the plate. Place the wings and use the cranberries to make the engines. Place the windows and the plane 'mouth' using pieces prepared from ham. Use the dried blueberry for the eye. Cut the biscuit stick (adjust the length to your needs) and place it as a tail of the plane. Mount the melon tail to it. Place the cheese to make clouds.
