1 Slice watermelon, rockmelon and honeydew melons into 1cm-thick slices. Using the cutters, cut melons into assorted sizes. Peel kiwifruit; cut into 5mm-thick slices. Cut green hulls from strawberries.
2 Twist a rubber band securely around each skewer, 3cm from the top of the skewer (this stops the fruit from sliding down the skewer). Thread a combination of fruit onto each skewer, finishing with a berry or small slice of melon.
