BELLEVILLE, IL (KTVI) - You can do many creative things with a watermelon. Tim and the interns exploded a watermelon with rubber bands earlier this week.  It was a mess!

You can do creative things, too – that are not so messy and much more useful. Chef Andrew Jeffrey, from National Shrine Our Lady of Snows, shows how the Shrine features a new watermelon sculpture at their Summerfest buffets on Friday and Saturday nights.

Andrew makes fruit carvings and all these things can be done with your kids at home, too!
