This is a fun and simple color, cut and paste paper craft that uses a toilet paper roll as a base to give it a three dimensional effect.
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. Blue oni are thought to be more rational and intellectural.
