Get Down To The Root

Get Down To The Root

Wed, March 25, 2020 by Brookgreen | in Education

Have you ever eaten a root? I bet you have. Carrots, beets, radishes, parsnips, onions, and garlic are all root vegetables. Check out the veggies in your home. Do you have any root vegetables? What is your favorite vegetable?

Enjoy creating a paper plate veggie garden craft.



Paper plate

Construction paper

Markers, crayons, or paint

Hole Punch


Color the top 1/3 of your paper plate blue and the bottom 2/3 brown.

Using a hole puncher, punch holes on the edge of your brown section.

Using brown yarn (any color could work) lace the front of your plate.

Pull the yarn snug as you thread the yarn, but not too tight that you deform the plate. 

Create different root vegetables from construction paper.

Weave the vegetable through the yarn to hold in place.
