Sumo origami

We love origami in our house. Particularly on a rainy, cold day when we're forced to stay inside (happens more in Japan than it does in Australia). One of our favourites is making sumo wrestlers and having wrestling bouts. Here you will find instructions. When you're finished making the sumos, you face them off on a somewhat unstable surface, like the top of a box and tap the surface so it wobbles a little. The first sumo to fall over is the loser. We made sumos with a group at Mt Tamborine last week. It was challenging for some to get their fingers working over small pieces of paper, but their results were good and fun too!
