How do you play with a cootie catcher?

After your cootie catcher is folded, ask a friend to play with you.

  1. Invite them to ask a question such as, “Should I eat more pie,” “Should I take a nap,” or “Should I go for a walk.”
  2. Then, have your friend pick one of the images from the outside flaps.
  3. Move the flaps by moving your fingers in and out and side to side in time with the letters, spelling out the word they chose.
  4. Open the cootie catcher to reveal the numbers and ask them to pick one.
  5. Count out the number they have chosen by moving the flaps in and out and side to side the same number of times as the number they chose.
  6. Then, ask them to pick another number.
  7. Open the flap beneath their chosen number to reveal the answer to their question.
