Lay the piece of green construction paper horizontally on a flat surface. Take one pudding cup and line it up to either the top of the bottom edge so you know where to cut the strip for the grass. It should cover the entire pudding cup.
Cut the strip of paper for the grass. Continue making small cuts about ¾ down the strip of paper to resemble grass blades. I took it a step further and made a few random cuts in between so some of the grass blades had jagged edges.
Wrap the strip of paper around a pudding cup (grass blades facing up), then trim to fit and add a piece of tape to secure it in the back.
Next, place your sandwich cookies (about 1 per pudding cup) in a ziplock bag. Release the air in the bag and ensure it’s tightly closed. Use a rolling pin to tap the cookies until they’ve broken into small pieces.
Crumble the cookie mixture on top of each pudding cup so it is completely coated. This resembles the dirt in the garden.
Add a few carrots to each pudding cup - allowing the orange part of the carrot to be partially buried into the pudding.
Write the word “Carrots” on a popsicle stick and place into the “carrot garden” and your Carrot Garden Pudding Cups are complete and ready to enjoy.
