With five kids, our home life is busy. We have a lot of activities, events and just chaos in general.

It can be hard to carve out one-on-one time with each of my kids. I like to do little things so they know they are important to me, even if we don’t have time for mother daughter or mother son time.

One way to do this is to sneak notes into their lunchboxes. Another way is to dress up their lunches in the spirit of the current season or upcoming holiday like these turkey snack crafts and these holiday snack crafts.

How to Make a Cheese Stick Carrot

This Cheese Stick Carrot is the perfect treat to put in your child’s lunch box with the Pudding Cup Bunny.And like all my crafts, it’s incredibly easy so those people like me with limited craft ability can still manage to create this cute treat.

You just need a few supplies: some green yarn, an orange marker, scissors, a low-temperature glue gun, and a cheese stick.

Step 1 – Color the Cheese Stick

Unless you are lucky enough to have cheddar cheese sticks available at your local grocery store, you’ll need to use an orange marker to color the cheese stick package to look like a carrot.

Step 2 – Make the Carrot Stem

Next, you’ll make the carrot stem with green yarn. Wrap it around your fingers a few times.

Then use the scissors to cut the loops on one end.

Now, fold the strips in half. (If you want to make it easier to keep the bundle together, you can use one of the strands to tie them together.)

Glue the bundle to the top of the cheese stick.
