At eatsleepdoodle we've been learning how to make paper fortune tellers! Follow the 10 easy steps below and make one along with us.
What you'll need:
Make sure you have some fun coloured paper (any will do!), scissors or a ruler and a pen.
Fold the left corner up until it makes a point and is parallel to the top of the piece of paper.
Fold the right corner up to meet the top of the first fold.
Cut or rip along the top line (ask an adult for help!) so that you're left with a triangle.
Unfold the paper so that it is a square. Then fold each corner into the centre.
Turn the square over and fold the corners in.
Then fold the paper in half so it looks like this. Use the bottom corner flaps to make the paper into the fortune teller shape.
The shape should look like this! Now it's time to add some fortunes...
Unfold the fortune teller and use the 8 blank spaces to write your fortunes. We've used kind words for ours!
Then begin re-folding into shape. Using the original fold lines as a guide. We suggest writing numbers on the next 8 spaces.
Then write something (we used colours) on the outside of the fortune teller. And decorate in any way you'd like!
Then you're finished!
They're a great activity and super fun to make!
