In the Carrot Patch Activity

This easy activity for kids is fun and it uses their fine motor skills!



My kids are too cute. In the warm months, they attack my flowers with the cutest dramatic play sessions. The flowers are carrots and they are farmers, anxious to share their crops!

With that kind of imagination, it is hard to get irritated over it. I thought maybe we could keep the carrot patch fun going, long after they had picked every stem.

This activity comes together fast! All you need is a box, some orange and green cardstock and some glue. A utility knife or box cutter will be handy as well.

Cut carrot shapes from the orange paper.
Glue green bits to the top, to resemble a fresh carrot.
Cut slits in the box, making them a tiny little bit wider than the carrot shape.
Slip the carrots into the slits and let the kids pick them and plant them.
This is great for fine motor and dramatic play, and it just might save the flowers, but I am not counting on it!
