Where do carrots come from? Here it is a simple carrots in the garden craft that can be used as a visual to answer your child’s question. The craft requires painting a couple of paper plates and paper cutting – activities that toddlers and preschoolers really enjoy.
My oldest’s favorite veggies are carrots so he gave a thumbs up to our craft. He even came up with his own version of our carrot craft.

- 2 paper plates
- light blue and brown paint
- green and orange paper
- brown Easter grass
Step 1: Paint one paper plate blue and the other one brown. The brown one needs to be painted on the back. When the paint has dried, cut the brown paper plate in half. We will only need one half for this craft.
Step 2: Staple the two paper plates together.
Step 3: Stick brown grass inside the paper plate pocket.
Step 4: Draw a few carrots on the orange construction paper and cut them out. Cut out carrot tops from the green paper and glue them to the back of the carrots.
Step 5: Place the carrots inside the “dirt”.
This is my son’s carrot craft version. He used only one paper plate and painted the top half blue and the bottom half brown. Some brown paint ended up on one of his carrots. I used this opportunity to explain to him that this is in fact how carrots look like when we pull them out of dirt. They are not nice and clean, but covered in dirt and need to be washed before eating them.
