DLTK's Crafts for Kids
Red Oni Paper Plate CraftRed Oni Paper Plate Craft

Contributed by Leanne Guenther

What are Oni?  Oni are naughty ogre-like creatures that bring bad luck to a household.  Originally oni were depicted as quite scary and evil but they've been a bit toned down over the years since so many daddies dress up as them for the big bean throwing event and parades so I think of them as more "naughty" or unlucky.

Oni are either blue or red.  They have two horns, carry a large iron club and wear a tiger skin loincloth.   When Japanese children play tag, the person who is "it" is called the oni.  Oni are also featured in a number of children's stories.

If you cut out holes instead of using the template eyes, you can convert your red oni craft to a red oni mask.  Attach a paint stir stick or tongue depressor to allow your child to hold it up to their face.
