How To Make A Carrot Easter Basket

Method

  1. Print and cut out the orange and green shapes from the Carrot Easter Basket Sheet.
  2. Follow the line to cut the orange semicircle and green leaf tops in half.
  3. Roll each orange quarter circle into a cone and tape or glue it securely in place. We used UHU glue which dried really quickly.
  4. Turn your carrot so the seam is at the back then glue the base of your green carrot top into the inside of the carrot cone also at the back.

Variations

  • If you prefer a carrying handle for your carrot simply trim a small strip off the quarter circle before rolling it into a cone. After the carrot has been made you could tape or glue it into place.
  • If you have some green card you could experiment with different carrot leaf shapes. See our photographs for some ideas.
  • If you have some orange card you could easily make different sized Carrot Easter Baskets. Just remember  to start with a quarter circle.

  5. Wow, so many fun ideas on your blog!! I am so happy you found me over at Sun Scholars. Thanks so much for sharing this idea at For the Kids Fridays! I am sharing this over on Facebook today!

    I am hosting a blog hop beginning April 1st – 100 Days of Play, to encourage busy moms to take some time each day, for 100 days, to play with their children. Think you might be interested in joining us?? I’m looking for 100 bloggers to share a simple way to connect with their kids through play with things they would already have around their home. Love to have you join us! http://www.sunscholars.com/p/100-days-of-play.html
