Make a Cootie Catcher and have fun telling your friend's fortunes at recess time, home time or anytime! Cootie Catchers are easy to make, just follow our instructions below. When you're done making our kid's cootie catcher craft, you will have to pick a theme for your Cootie Catcher. To play your friends will ask your cootie catcher a question like, "Where will I live when I grow up?" Then pick numbers on your Cootie Catcher until the answer is revealed. This is a great craft for birthday parties.
Follow these step by step instructions to create your very own Cootie Catcher.
Fold the bottom of the paper to the side of the page to make a triangle.
Use scissors to cut off the flap at the top.
Open the triangle and you will have a square.
Fold one corner of the paper diagonally to the other corner.
Open your paper. You will now have a center point marked on the paper.
Fold each corner of the paper towards the center.
Open each flap and write something on each triangle. What you write depends on the type of Cootie catcher you have made.
Flip the Cootie Catcher over so that the numbers are face up. Fold the square in half and slip your thumbs and pointer finger under the four flaps.
