Turn fresh carrots from the farmer’s market into yummy, crunchy carrot chips! They’re simple to make—and a great way for kids to practice using a veggie peeler. Just slice them up with the peeler, then roast them in the oven for summer snack activity.
Here are the tools needed:
- 2 baking sheets
- measuring spoons
- carrot peeler
- knife & cutting board
Kids will learn how to peel carrots and how to bake using this recipe. A grown-up can also cut more carrots into tiny sticks with a knife or mandolin. This recipe is only 20 minutes, start to finish. Hands on time is only 10 minutes.
