Step 3

Let’s make the leaves now. Get a green paper(approx.18 x 6 cm) and make ‘V’ shaped cuts on it from one end to the other. They don’t need to be of the same size. This is a great activity to improve the scissor skills in kids. 

Now, apply glue at the lower part of it with glue stick. Then, fold it inwards from one end to the other as shown below and press it firmly to fix everything in place. Stick this behind the accordion carrot.
