Creepy Carrots!

MBS just loved this book!

Creepy Carrots written by Aaron Reynolds and illustrated by Peter Brown.

It really was just a hit with him. The story is about a carrot loving rabbit who starts seeing “creepy carrots” everywhere. While it is a “scary” book it didn’t scare my almost 4 year old and it has a wonderful twist at the end.

I decided since MBS loved this book so much we should do a craft to go along with it. I had all the supplies ready for him when he woke up one morning, he was thrilled! (3 cheers for prepared Mommy!)


  • Orange foam sheets, I pre-cut carrot shapes and stalks but an older child could do this on their own.
  • Foam glue
  • Googly eyes
  • Orange pom poms
  • Marker to draw mouths
Oh, that glue was hard to squeeze!
Smile carrots!
Beware… the creepy carrots!

Just be warned, not only are they creepy and may show up anywhere around the house they also…

make nice swords!

  1. Love the craft! I wonder if S would let me read this book to him. It looks great, but he’s unbelievably fussy about illustrations. Hmm…what other veggies might we put googly eyes on?

    1. Googly eyes can go on anything! Same with pom poms, at least according to MBS. I enjoyed the cartoony aspect of the book. So far MBS hasn’t shown a preference about illustrations.

  2. What a wonderful book! We don’t really like creepy books, but we do love carrots.
