Why not make a cute little garland with a bunch of these adorable carrots! We are showing you how to make a yarn wrapped carrot craft for kids and kids at heart.
This one can be a great decoration, just imagine this as a classroom craft where each of the students makes their own and then they are all displayed on the wall. Such a fun project for Easter.

Yarn Wrapped Carrot Craft for Kids
What you need:
- orange acrylic wool
- green or natural wood clothespins (if you will be using natural wood ones, you will need to color those too)
- white school glue (optional)
This craft provides lots of fine motor exercise. It works great for kids in kindergarten and preschool.
Lets make this Easter craft!
Draw a carrot shape on the cardboard and cut it out. If young kids will be working on this project we recommend the adult does all the cutting.
While you cut the carrot shapes, kids can color the clothespins (be mindful that some paints can “glue” the clothespins together). We recommend using pre-colored clothespins or coloring them with markers or even ink pads.
To make this project a bit easier for younger kids, cut into the carrot shape a few times, so that the kids can push the yarn inside – this will make the wrapping process more young kid friendly.
Wrap the yarn around the carrot shape a few times. If you want, you can add a bit of white school glue onto the cardboard (but it can get a bit messy – which too is fun).
Now it’s time to wrap the orange yarn all around and around.
Keep on wrapping until you are happy with how your yarn carrot craft is looking. Tie a know.
Now all that is left to do is to add clothespins on the top of your yarn carrot craft. Done!
