Paper Doily Carrots

04 Mar

Following our carrot juice making, I got a few books from the library. These are the three titles.

You will need some paper doilies, orange and green food colouring/poster paint, paint brushes, yarn.

Paint centre of doily orange and the frills green.

Cut doilies in half. Roll each half into a cone. Tie around frills using a piece of yarn. Make some cuts in the frills and open up to look like leaves.

Paper doily carrots.

When we read the Carrot Seed book, I added to the story that the little boy made dua to Allah asking for the carrot to grow. Otherwise the story seem to have a very negative tone to it.

    Assalamu ‘alaykum

    I love when children can engage in activities that match the storybook they’ve read. Those carrots are so cute and they look yummy too! MashaAllah.
