Seaweed Art Cards
  • Sweetheart Cootie Catcher

    "image of stationery"This is a classic I remember from childhood. Some people call them fortune tellers.

    Materials:

    • Construction paper or copy paper
    • Markers, crayons or gel pens
    • Optional: Stickers or other decorations

    Take a regular-sized piece of paper and place it vertically flat in front of you. Turn one corner down to line up with the opposite side of the paper. Tear or cut off the excess.  You  now have a perfect square. Fold one corner to the opposite corner to form a triangle. Fold again to form an even smaller triangle. Open up the paper. Take each corner and fold it into the center point so that when you are finished all four corners folded make another square. Flip entire piece over and repeat the previous procedure. You should see eight small triangles. Number each of these. Flip up the flaps and write romantic messages underneath. When you flip it over you will have four squares that act as “pockets” for your thumb and index fingers.  Number these too. Place your fingers inside and start playing. Have your child hold the Cootie Catcher and ask her Valentine to pick a number. She then opens and closes the Cootie Catcher that many times.  The Valentine child then picks an inside number and when you lift up that flap you will find your special Valentine message.
