Valentine Carrots

This year my teacher asked me to make a heart shaped lunch for my son's pre-school class.  We cut sandwiches into hearts with a cookie cutter, we cut slices of cheese from a cheese block into a heart shapes, we cut strawberries in half to look like a heart and then I made these heart carrot slices.  You take a carrot stick and using the potato peeler you shave or "whittle" one side of the length of the carrot into a point.  Then you cut a "v" out of the round top length of the carrot.  I used the potato peeler to "round out" out the "v" edges.  Then you slice the carrot horizontally into hearts.  Viola!
