Dorodango - 泥 (どろ doro) "mud" and だんご (dango) "rice dumpling" - is a traditional pasttime for many Japanese school children. Dirt is mixed with water, then slowly shaped into a perfect, shiny or textured sphere. That's it. Mud and time. Bruce from Dorodango.com has perfected the process, and is happy to share it with us.
