Carrots you say?! Yes! We tried making shamrocks from baby carrots today! It actually worked very well and they turned out adorable! You must use a knife/peeler so you might want to prep this craft before hand. It is great for a St. Patrick's Day craft!
These could be great to make a St. Patty's card!
You will need a carrot, knife, potato peeler, green paint, a tiny paintbrush, and a piece of paper.
Start by cutting the end of the carrot off making a smooth surface. Angle a knife to cut an upside-down "triangle" shape out.
Take a peeler and smooth out the top and the sides to make it look more like a heart.
Have the kids dip the carrot in the green paint and press it hard against the paper.
Show them how to make a shamrock shape (stamping 3 times to make the leaves)
Take a tiny paintbrush and make shamrock stems! So cute.
