Remember when we were kids, and we played games with origami cootie catchers? At least that is what we called them. They could tell you who you were going to marry, or where you would live. Anyone remember MASH?
Well, I was looking around on Pinterest and stumbled across these amazing St Patty Day’s Cooties. You can find the original post here. They are so easy to make and so much fun. My girls LOVED them.
- Print out the above Catcher
- Cut around the square
- Fold it
How incredibly simple is that. With only four steps, there is no reason not to print out like a dozen of these lovelies. If you can’t exactly remember how to fold them (no shame there, I too had to Google it. Man my Google is getting quite the workout this week) it is way easy.
Cut out square.
Fold opposite corners together. Unfold and fold other opposite corners together.
Turn paper print side down fold all four corner to the middle.
Flip paper over, and fold all corners to middle again.
Fold Cootie Catcher in half. Open and fold in half other way.
Push corners together, and slide fingers under flaps. Ta Da!!! You have made your Fortune Teller!! Now go see what kind of luck you are going to have this St. Patty’s Day.
