This footprint carrot makes a fun Spring or Easter craft and could even be used for a vegetable preschool unit. It's simple to make and a creative Easter craft keepsake to look back on when the child is older!
How to make the Footprint Carrot Craft:
Paint, or have the child paint the toes green as well as a strip just below the toes. It should be in a bit of an arch so the the carrot's top is rounded. Paint the rest of the foot with orange paint.
Have the child place their foot on the paper to make the print. We used yellow construction paper instead of the usual white.
When it dries, draw orange lines to represent the indentations in a carrot.

I used a decorative edge to punch the sides of our paper and then glued it to green cardstock. I love all of the Martha Stewart craft edge punches!
Draw a horizontal line across the entire page equal to where the orange and green paint meet. Have the child make brown fingerprints underneath the line to represent dirt.
Do the same thing as above but instead of fingerprints, use brown watercolors or watered down brown paint.
