Valentine Fortune Teller Games
great for kids' parties
These were a huge hit at a first grade Valentine's day party. Both the boys and girls had fun with them. I pre-folded them for the kids to save time.

Great V- Day give aways
My 4th and 5th grade students enjoyed it 2 years in a row. As simple as it is, it does presents some challenge for folding, but working with a partner helps them accomplish their goal and makes it more fun. After the completion of it they enjoy minimum 20 minutes of playing fortune teller. Some even brought it next day to play and asked for extras.

Made Me Feel Like a Kid Again
These were a big hit - especially with the ladies I gave them to. Everyone was taken back to their high school days when these were so popular. Glad the instructions were on the back. Most people had forgotten how to fold them!

Be aware that they are not a normal size, much smaller but work
Got these for my 4th grader to pass out and although he was very excited about the fortune tellers, he was disappointed on how small they were. They do work but just be aware that they are much smaller than the ones that kids make with a regular piece of paper. Colors are great and they are cute, just small.

Great for 3rd grade
Small, but okay for child-sized hands. Our set came with the instructions printed on the back of each one. This makes it hard to follow the directions as you are folding the fortune teller. The directions are a bit confusing if you have never made one before. We plan to give each child one already folded and one that is not. We are counting on the fact that most children are familiar with these. Love the fact that there are 48 in a pack.

I bought these for a halloween carnival birthday party. I used them as a prize for a fortune teller game. They were set up with 8ball, skull fortune teller and fortune cookies. The kids loved them!

Valentine Fortune Tellers
These were a little difficult to make at first, but once we got the hang of it, we got through them quickly. The children seemed to love them at my daughter's Valentine's Party!

children love this
this little cootie-catcher is a huge hit with my 3rd grader and class. The pre folded paper let them work out the construction with very little aid. The paper was small so the toy was to small for adult hands to work almost. Still the kids had a blast with them.

Valentines fortune tellers
These are really cute and a great idea--however, the fortune tellers that my kids and their friends all make tell "fortunes" like "You will have a great day today" You will become a millionaire" so they were a bit perplexed by these fortune tellers that don't really tell fortunes but provide answers such as "yes" or "maybe." Still, they are cute and once they figured out that you had to start by having the person ask a question, they had a lot of fun with them. Also, the paper is a bit flimsy--they don't last long before they tear--and there is only one set of instructions in each pack so we had to copy the instructions for each child. I suggested that we just pre-fold them before sticking them in the goody bags but my daughter informed me that folding them into fortune tellers was "half the fun" So they would want to do that themselves.
