What's Your Fortune?
Cootie catchers, sometimes known as paper fortune tellers, have long been a favorite activity of elementary-and middle-schoolers, but folks of all ages can enjoy these origami paper crafts. Origami is the Japanese word for "paper-folding," though the art of paper-folding arose separately in Japan, China, and Europe at different times.
Although you might remember how to fold a cootie catcher from a piece of lined notebook paper, it's also fun to find one that's been designed in a special theme. When you find the one you like, simply download, print, and fold the paper template, and then grab a friend to have a little nostalgic fun.Continue to 2 of 11 below.
