Fun Cootie Catchers

Cootie Catchers.... AKA  Fortune Tellers

You know what I'm talking about, right?  They have been around forEVER! What's amazing though is the kids still love them.  Over the years I have had kids that really get into them, while other groups of kids will make them here and there, and at times it may just be one or two kids in the class.  There is no telling what the kids will write on the inside of their cootie catcher.... everything from "You will get married to Bobbie", to "You live on Mars." to whatever else they can come up with.  These are just non-sense fun and probably something you tell the kids to put away or throw away.  Right

Have you ever thought about actually encouraging these little cootie catchers?  By the way, where did that name come from anyway?  I understand the fortune teller name but cootie catcher???? not sure about that one!  Anyway, I thought my kids would love to be able to use a fortune teller that was promoted by the teacher.  They would think of me as the cool teacher, HA!  :=)  In an effort to try it out, I made a couple.  They were a big hit!  I plan to make many more simply because they do offer a great review opportunity.  With testing coming up, this is a fun way to review skills previously taught. Check them out, and get all the details in my Teachers Pay Teacher's Store.
