The paper fortune teller, or cootie catcher, was a great way to spend time at recess or during down-time in elementary school.

My older son came home from school today and asked me if I know how to make one. I have to be honest, it's been a looong time since I made a paper fortune teller, so I do what everyone does now-a-days and find the DIY video on YouTube!

Even in the world of X-BOX and Play Station, it's nice to see that kids still like to play with something as simple - and let's be honest - cheap as a piece of paper.

Check out more fun and games with my 2 boys and something slightly more messy than a paper fortune teller...
