Do you remember making these when you were a kid?

Have a blast with this fortune teller origami for kids.

Print in color or in black and white.


Print the cooties catcher.

Cut out the printed part.  You will then have a square.

Lay the paper on a flat surface with the printed side down.

Fold each corner into the center.

Turn it over and fold the corners into the center again.,

Fold the cootie catcher in half with numbers on the inside.

Put a finger and a thumb into the slots and squeeze the corners toward the middle.

To play:

Player 1 operates the cootie catcher and is the fortune teller.

Player 2 asks a question, (the sillier, the better) then picks a corner.

The operator, Player 1 counts out B L U E or G R E E N, etc. based on the chosen corner.

Player 2 then chooses a number from inside.

The operator, Player 1, counts out the numbers.

Do this as many times as you like, then have Player 2 choose a final number.

Count out the number and then lift the flap to find the answer to the question that was asked.
