Carrots on the windowsill

Have you ever done this with your kids?  My Mum used to do this for me and my siblings when we were young and we loved it.  I just remembered it the other day when I was cutting the tops off carrots whilst making dinner. All you do is take the top, put it in a little bowl (or on a saucer or whatever) with some cotton wool and keep the cotton wool moist.  It doesn't take long for the carrot to sprout.  Every morning at breakfast my two ask to check on its progress.  Cheap, easy fun.


  1. Hi Catherine! It's nice to hear from you again. This is a great science project for kids. Do you think it will work over here? And with a carrot that has been in the fridge?

  2. Hi Aisyah!
    I am sure it will work and the carrot I used was from the fridge too. Give it a shot and let me know how it goes. It will probably grow a lot faster than mine considering we are heading into winter.
