Fortune Teller Cootie

One of the timeless kids paper crafts. Also called “Cootie Catchers”, these fortune tellers are just as popular today as they were when I was little. There are endless possibilities for what to write to create a fun game. Use your imagination.


Two pieces of paper - large enough to make an 8" square

Note: Because one sheet of paper tends to be flimsy and rip easily on the seams. I glue two sheets of paper together. Here I glued a white and a pink to make it easier to see in the pictures.  Whatever color is started on the bottom will be the color of the fortune teller.
