* First things first – the pipe cleaner carrot, the most important step! Take your orange pipe cleaner, make a slight oval shape and fold/connect the two ends of the pipe cleaner, so they don’t come apart. Now bend/pull your orange pipe cleaner to make a carrot shape. Set aside.
* Next grab your TWO green pipe cleaners. Cut them in half with scissors. Fold/twist them and attach them to the orange pipe cleaner carrot shape, to give the look of the greenery for the carrot. See our picture for example. Once done, set your carrot aside.
* Now grab your tan cardstock and brown paint. Have children paint some “dirt” on the cardstock.
* Next is the tacky glue. Go ahead and put a good amount of tacky glue on one side of the pipe cleaner carrot. Lay your carrot on top of the newly painted tan cardstock.
* Set aside your piece in an undisturbed area, to allow the glue to dry completely. If the pipe cleaner doesn’t want to stick, add more glue or get the glue gun out to really secure it.
* Once done, display proudly!
