I decided that it'd be fun for the kids to make a small Easter basket for my parents since we won't be here to celebrate Easter with them. So the kids helped make these super cute and super easy carrots! I saw these online somewhere, but don't recall where.
Here's what we used:
plastic sandwich baggies
Goldfish crackers (num num!)
We started off by putting some Goldfish into the baggies.... not much. Get them into the corner of the bag.
Next, twist the extra part of the bag and shape the Goldfish into a carrot shape as best you can. It's not perfect, but everyone will get the idea. Tie a piece of yarn around the top of the carrot to keep it closed.
Then I trimmed most of the extra plastic off the top (the zipper wasn't too pretty).
Next, I cut pieces of yarn. Ours were about 6 inches long, but you can make them however you want. I would guess I used about 20 pieces on each carrot.
I tied the bundle of yarn pieces around the top of the carrot and voila! We have carrots!
I plan to make some of these for the kids Easter baskets. They don't REALLY need any more candy. There will be some in the baskets... don't worry, but anything I can put in there that is not sweet is a bonus!
