Ready to make sugarcane craft with/for kids? This post has two great ideas to make sugarcane with things you already have at home. 

In Tamilnadu, the Pongal celebration is incomplete without sugarcane. 

I made these for my toddler around the Pongal festival ( Indian Harvest festival) two years Back. She loved playing with these so much, and We still have a few of these Bamboo Stick sugarcanes in her Play Kitchen. 

Before learning how to make these canes, Here are three facts about sugarcane, that you can teach your child. 

  • Sugarcanes are grasses(Scientifically) that grow up to 6′ tall. 
  • They are found only in tropical countries.
  • Sugarcane stores carbohydrates in various forms of sugar. 
  • 70% of the sugar in the world is produced from sugarcane.
