Bamboo grows wild in Japan, thanks to its naturally warm, humid climate. As a result, you’ll find bamboo throughout Japanese culture, from the instruments to the cuisine. This simple craft in our Japan Unit highlights this versatile plant while also strengthening your child’s fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination.
What you need:
- empty tuna can (a large size works best)
- a small glass jar (an 8 oz jar or baby food jar would work)
- small bamboo plant
What to do:
Start by potting 2-3 stalks of bamboo in the glass jar using your soil.
Next, have your child clip clothespins around the edge of the tun can.
Finally, place the jar inside the can to complete your planter.
