Fold and cut a sheet of orange cardstock in half crosswise.
Apply double-sided tape to one long side and halfway across on short end.
Remove backing paper on tape and carefully fold card in half without creasing, sealing the sides and one short end.
Gently fold the open upper end of the tube in the opposite direction to the short sealed end, so the side edge is now in the centre of the top edge. Crease the corners.
Use scissors to trim the creased corners and upper edge into a rounded shape.
Fold and cut a sheet of green cardstock crosswise into 4 quarters. (Set 3 of the strips aside for remaining carrots.) Apply double-sided tape halfway along one long edge of remaining strip.
Remove backing paper, fold and crease strip in half and seal.
Apply double-sided tape to half of sealed edge, remove backing paper, fold in half again and seal.
Using scissors, snip across folded rectangle towards sealed edge, creating lots of fine leafy fronds. Take care not to clip the whole way.
Apply a bit of double-sided tape to uncut end of leaves and secure inside one open edge of carrot.
Use a black marker to make a few 'wrinkle' marks on carrot, if desired, and fill carrot with treats. Seal top with a little more tape.

This post will chronicle my attempts at recreating these fun carrots, what worked and what did not. Yes, even I make attempts at craft projects that fail, but those.
Have your toddler or preschooler do this simple Easter carrot craft using various orange coloured materials. A wonderful introduction to them learning how to use a glue stick and develop skills in cutting and pasting.
This is the first time Possum (aged 3 years) has an understanding of Easter and the existence of the Easter bunny. She is absolutely full of questions and I’m loving our lengthy conversations about why rabbits live in holes and enjoy eating carrots. Typically, she was very excited to be doing this Easter related activity, especially that it meant she ‘d need to use a glue stick.
Recommended age: 2 years +
(Active supervision is required on all my crafts and activities)
I’m not a fabulous drawer but I had no trouble roughly scribbling a large carrot shape on the white sheet of paper and cutting it out, ready to be decorated. Possum was then ready to use all the orange materials available to her and stick them using the glue stick.
It sounds like the most basic of craft activities, but how wonderful for toddlers and preschool aged children! Possum loved using the glue stick and put quite a lot of thought and planning what the final product would look like.
While glue sticks were great on papers, Possum discovered that some of the orange materials needed a different type of glue to be able to stick. This was because of the size or shape of the pieces.
Now for the leafy green top. Simply have your child trace around their hand as best as they can. You can assist them and go about cutting it out in a rough hand shape. Tracing is wonderful sensory experience for children.
Simply add the green hand prints to the tops and their wonderful crafty carrots are complete. These would make wonderful decorations over the Easter holiday period and for the Easter bunny to see when it comes to visit.

What you need:
This craft provides lots of fine motor exercise. It works great for kids in kindergarten and preschool.
Draw a carrot shape on the cardboard and cut it out. If young kids will be working on this project we recommend the adult does all the cutting.
While you cut the carrot shapes, kids can color the clothespins (be mindful that some paints can “glue” the clothespins together). We recommend using pre-colored clothespins or coloring them with markers or even ink pads.
To make this project a bit easier for younger kids, cut into the carrot shape a few times, so that the kids can push the yarn inside – this will make the wrapping process more young kid friendly.
Wrap the yarn around the carrot shape a few times. If you want, you can add a bit of white school glue onto the cardboard (but it can get a bit messy – which too is fun).
Now it’s time to wrap the orange yarn all around and around.
Keep on wrapping until you are happy with how your yarn carrot craft is looking. Tie a know.
Now all that is left to do is to add clothespins on the top of your yarn carrot craft. Done!

Easter is about more than just the egg and the bunny it is about the carrot, too! There are so many cute and creative carrot crafts that you can.
I’m sharing a super easy craft today that needs only a few materials. Sometimes the easiest ones are the best ones and our Cone Paper Carrots Craft are perfect for Easter!
Needing only orange cardstock, green tissue paper, scissors and tape, this Cone Paper Carrots Craft goes together in a matter of minutes.
While they’re a darling craft in itself, and would look cute in an Easter basket, they’d be even better as a treat container filled with Easter candies! Such a great way to bring some Easter goodies into your child’s classroom or to pass out at Easter parties!
First, cut a sheet of cardstock into fourths. We used a larger square sheet of 12×12. I like the larger sheet because you can get equal size smaller squares.
Then, each of the cut sheets of cardstock into a cone shape. Tape along the seam so that it stays in shape.
Cut a large sheet of tissue paper into fourths as well. Fill with goodies, if filling, and scrunch the tissue paper up, leaving a few tufts sticking up, and stuff into just the top of the carrot.
You don’t have to be a fan of munching on carrots to love this fun, easy Rolled Paper Carrots craft! Be sure to check out more of our Easter crafts and ideas at Our Kid Things!
