Paper tube sugarcane

This is another simple craft we did for sankranti. Used the empty gift wrapping paper tube and asked putti to paint it entirely. Could use the kitchen paper napkin or aluminium foil tube too. Once the paint dried cut the tube into into 2 and then painted circles with white and black to mark the sections on the sugarcane. Later glued lilly leaves to one end.

Pin It Now!


ವಾಹ್ !
ಸಂಕ್ರಾಂತಿ ಕಬ್ಬು ತುಂಬಾ ಚೆನ್ನಾಗಿದೆ ಪುಟ್ಟಿ.
ಹಬ್ಬದ ನಂತರ ಶುಗರ್ ಕೇನ್ ಜ್ಯೂಸ್ ಮಾಡಿ ಆಯ್ತಾ :)

I have a 3 1/2 year old and I love your creativity in involving your daughter in the various Indian traditions. Putti must be a lucky girl :) With Sankranthi close approaching, I will have my son do this as well.. Will follow your blog closely from now.

Hello Rajitha,
Welcome here and thanks for your appreciative comments. Our kids growing away from India do need such activities to keep them interested to learn about our culture. Big cities do have 'BalVihar' and such which is not in my city, hence my extra efforts.
Do try them with your son and let me know
