Maybe now you remember just from the pictures?  I think we all used to play with them as kids.  Maybe you have heard it called a fortune teller.  For this version you would pick a fish (either one, two, red, or blue).  Then spell either one, two, red, or blue while going back and forth with the cootie catcher.  Next pick a number.  Again go back and forth but this time while counting.  Then pick a number one more time.  Lift that number flap and read what is inside.  Okay that doesn’t sound like much fun but kids love these things!

For this version, the “fortunes” inside are all inspirational Dr. Seuss quotes.  You can use this as a tool to teach your kids about a great writer.  Plus learn some great new quotes in the process.  Fun and educational?  That is my kind of free printable.
