Where I grew up, we called these little paper contraptions fortune tellers. Later, I heard them referred to as cootie catchers. Either way, they are loads of fun. I loved, l-o-v-e-d when a friend would whip one up and we’d spend ages going through, seeing what fortunes we could get. It was such a simple pleasure. Corinne of So September has provided a printable cootie catcher/fortune teller and instructions on folding it up and using it. For some reason, I never learned how to make these as a kid. I only knew how to play with them. Now I’m ready to print this puppy out and introduce my own kids to the awesomeness that is open-close-open-close-open fortune telling.
