What to Do

Begin by pouring about 1/2 cup of salt into a plastic bag and a few drops of food coloring. Seal your plastic bag and squish until everything has been mixed well.

Next, pour your orange colored salt onto a tray. You can allow it to dry for a bit (about 15-30 minutes) or you can begin working with it right away. We noticed our fingers turned a tiny bit orange because we used ours right away but the coloring washed right off.

Then,  download and print the carrot alphabet cards. Or, if you are already a current newsletter subscriber, click here to access our resource library of free printables.

For added durability, you can laminate the carrot cards.
