Japan invaded by shiny mud balls!

I kid you not: Shiny mud balls (hikaru dorodango) are a back-to-nature craft that is sweeping Japan's elementary schools.

Kids make fist-sized balls out of mud, let them dry, then compete to see who can make the roundest, shiniest one.

Oh, well. At least it gets the kids outside and away from their video games!

(How do they know they're shiny mud balls and not Horta eggs?)
