Who doesn’t love the 80’s and 90’s, everything was big, bold, and utterly glamorous. I was born in the 80’s and grew up in the 90’s, and have some fond memories of iconic kids gadgets. For our arts and crafts this week we have decided to look back on some of these.

Fortune Teller

What you need

  • Paper (we used A4)

Messy Instructions

Step 1

Grab your A4 piece of paper and fold the bottom side so it is flush with one of the side.

Step 7

Fold a corner onto the middle one at a time.

Step 8

As you can see the triangle pointing into the middle are split with a line/gap down the middle. Number each smaller triangle (we numbered ours 1-8 to make it simple).

Number 1-8

Step 9

Open up 1 triangle (number 1 and 2) and divide the flap on the inside into 2 (we drew a line to make it clear). Then repeat on all flaps. Once they are all open write little dares or tasks for people to do. We wrote Joe Wicks exercse challanges! (my boys hate me ).

Write dares or tasks

Step 10

Fold all the flaps back down and turn it over. Write/Colour colour names onto the new squares and turn it over and do the same on the other side. Then open it out.

Your fortune teller is now complete, have fun!
