It is important to stay calm if you are lost. This hands-on activity is a great conversation starter about what to do if you are lost. While making these whistle carrots, parents and educators should talk to their children about the lesson I’m Lost and what to do next if they think they are lost.

INGREDIENTS

  • Carrots

  • Baby carrots

  • Drill

  • Knife

DIRECTIONS

Find the longest and straightest carrot to use for this activity. Trim off the end to make sure it’s perfectly straight.
