Activity: Carrot Necklaces

  • Carrots
  • Heavey thread
  • Darning needle
  • Knife
  1. Wash the carrots and cut them into slices about 1/4 inch thick
  2. Thread your needle. The thread should be long enough to go around someone's head, plus a little extra.
  3. Push the carrot slices onto the thread by pushing the needle into the center of each slice.
  4. Once completed, lay your necklace on a piece of paper in a dark place to dry, making sure none of the carrots touch each other. As the carrots harden and dry, they turn into wrinkled beads. The dryin process takes about a week.
