Spring DIY: Goldfish Filled Carrots for Easter Baskets

Easter is just around the corner and I’ve been on the prowl for some Easter goodies to make for Truett’s class.  I’ve seen these ‘Easter Carrots‘ before but most of them were filled with candy; reese’s pieces, orange jelly beans, orange m&ms, etc.  Because there is a little girl in Truett’s class that’s allergic to red dye (and yes, orange stuff does have red dye in it), I chose to use Goldfish Crackers.   They’ll need something ‘bready’ to soak up sugar from all that Easter candy anyways!

These Easter carrots are one of the easiest crafts to make and will make your little bunny grin from ear to ear.  Truett helped me by cutting ribbon so let your kiddos help if possible. It just makes the experience that much more fun!  You can find Easter crafts & recipes at Walmart (which is where I bought mine) and be sure to check back soon. I’ll be posting a couple of other easy goodies that anyone can make!

Goldfish Filled Carrots for Easter Baskets

Ingredients & Supplies

  • Goldfish Crackers
  • Wilton Disposable Decorator Bags
  • Green Ribbon

Instructions

  1. Filled your decorator bag with Goldfish crackers.
  2. Tie with green ribbon.

Quick notes

I cut off the excess bag so that it didn’t show as much. I also only filled the bag half way. You could make bigger carrots though if you wanted!  Also, I found that it made the green tail more full if I tied each piece of ribbon separately and on opposite sides.  And to make it look perky, instead of falling towards the carrot, I tied a ribbon around the base of all the ties.  You might be able to find different ribbon that works better but we had a limited selection.

Variations

Try using orange candy too!

      I know a lot of school are like that. Such a bummer!!! I guess since we’re still such a small school, they don’t mind. I had fun doing this and even trying to take a good photo! LOL I’m starting way early I know……I can’t wait to see what you do. You’re a master at decorative food! :)
