My FedEx Out of Office blog post is up for March, and I almost forgot to share it with you guys before St. Patrick’s Day!   This is a fun printable (with Dot artwork, naturally!) that your kids can fold up and have fun sharing with their friends.

St Patrick's Day Printable: Origami Fortune Teller (Cootie Catcher)

You remember these from grade school, right?  You would make them out of a piece of notebook paper, then play with them telling fortunes until they were confiscated by a mean teacher!  We always just called them fortune tellers, but according to the internet, they are also known as Cootie Catchers.

I’ve got the printable and the instructions on how to fold it up, if you’re a little rusty, over at FedEx Out of Office.

EDIT: Apparently the FedEx blog is kaput, so here are the instructions! How to Fold your St. Pat's Cootie Catcher!

    Totally remember the fortune teller. I so much love to play this game even until my college days. We usually do this whenever we get bored during classes. And luckily we aren’t caught by our professor in college. This is totally a cool game for St. Patrick’s …thanks for sharing the printable… cheers! ^_^
