Free Printable Back to School Fortune Teller (aka Chatterbox or Cootie Catcher) Post Preview: Enjoy some back to school ice breakers with these free printable fortune tellers for kids.
Some people call these fortune tellers, some call them cootie catchers, and some call them chatterboxes. Apparently, some people even call them salt cellars. What’s that about? Sorry if that’s what you call them. I guess it makes as much sense as cootie catcher, which is what I grew up calling them.
Any way around it, this fun and quintessential origami schoolyard activity is a favorite amongst kids of all ages.
To celebrate back to school time, here is a back to school fortune teller that is free to download and print. It is filled with some fun discussion starters that are perfect for the beginning of the school year.
On a side note: I am seriously challenged when it comes to making these. Like for real. I was envious of people who could put together these cool fortune tellers. If you’re like me, you’ll be happy to know that there is an instructions page with the download.
