Activities for The Carrot Seed
Carrots In the Garden
First we’re starting in the Garden. Do you want to grow carrots with your family?
Here’s our post about How to Grow Carrots.
In the Kitchen with Carrots
- Carrot Playdough
We made orange playdough for our carrot activity. My 5 year old daughter and I found a playdough recipe online and then she wrote down the ingredients so we could find them in the kitchen. Once we gathered the ingredients she measured and mixed. We used a no-cook playdough recipe so that she could be involved in most of the making of it.
Truthfully it didn’t exactly work out so we ended up having to cook it anyway but at least she was able to mix everything together on her own and watch how Mommy problem solves to make something work. She really enjoyed the process of how to make playdough orange.
