How to Play with Cootie Catchers:

  • Using two hands, place you thumbs and pointer finger under each picture.
  • Have someone pick a picture – cat, bats, hat or spider. And then open it each direction until you spell out that word. (HINT:If your child has trouble spelling the words, simply make a little cheat sheet for them.)
  • Have them pick a number and count it opening it in each direction.
  • Have them pick a number again and count it opening it in each direction.
  • Last time – Have them pick a number and look under the number to give them a spooky message.
