Arts + Crafts: Cootie Catchers

January 12, 2017

 

Cootie Catchers/Fortune Tellers (whatever you want to call them) were a pretty big deal way back when. Next to M.A.S.H. , it was the quintessential way to get a glimpse into the great unknown. And the results were treated as an absolute guarantee. This is of course, after you've made your BFF redraw until you landed on a suitable future, ie. marrying Joey McIntyre (Thanks Vanessa!)

 

Surprisingly, these are still popular today! When we went to go search for instructions, what we found were a number of next level variations on the traditional Cootie Catcher. So we narrowed down our favourites to share with you here!
