Instructions: 
  1. Print and cut out the helmet cutouts.
  2. Cut one end of the watermelon flat so that it stands up vertically.
  3. As if carving a pumpkin, cut an upside down "U" shaped opening in one side of the watermelon as pictured.
  4. Using a melon baller, scoop fruit out of all three melons and mix together in a large mixing bowl.
  5. Add lemon juice to preserve freshness and stir.
  6. Lay the foil pie pan upside down on a round serving dish, bunching paper towels underneath the pie pan to help catch any dripping juice.
  7. Stand the flat end of the watermelon on a foil pie plate, securing to the pan on the inside with several toothpicks.
