Between April 2016 and January 2017 I carved almost every week day’s morning carrots for my 4 year old son for his kindergarden lunchbox. The initial intention was to make him eat the vegetables, but he began to trade the carrots for „better“ food with other children. One day he wanted that all the members of his kindergarden group get a carved carrot, too. So I ended up carving 23 magic wands, arrows, bows and axes. Taking 5 minutes to carve the carrots every morning at 6:30 was an interesting creative exercise for me.
